"I am happy to recommend Jenni. I asked her for help to get to grips with freehand machine embroidery and although I only gave her a high level brief she came prepared, with lots of samples, inspiration and advice and guidance. In one session I made huge progress - thank you Jenni!"
Rachael from Somerton (studying City & Guilds level 3 Certificate in Design and Craft - Creative Embroidery/Stitched Textiles)
"The workshop was such good value for money. We were so inspired by Jenni's wonderful work and the combination of demonstrations, with plenty of hands on practical experience. Tuition was well structured but relaxed, there was plenty of practice time, guidance and progression. We covered everything from threads, fabrics and techniques. Brilliant!"
Naomi and Mother Shirley from Wiltshire (Absolute beginners)
"Jenni is a very helpful and skilled enabler. I learnt a lot of useful techniques in a short space of time and found the one to one aspects of the tutorials totally non threatening and fun!! It was also delightful to be surrounded by Jenni's work as a source of inspiration. The handouts supplied were very clear and easy to understand and were of great help to remind me of what I had been taught".
Terry from Bruton (Quilter and Patchworker)
"I approached Jenni through her website after seeing an advertisement for a course she was running. What I wanted to do was to explore a range of questions around machine embroidery techniques rather than focus on learning practical machine work. After a helpful phone conversation and some e-mailing, I spent a fruitful morning with her, during which she somehow managed to cover everything on my list of possible topics that was within her experience as well as fitting in a bit of time at the machine. I found her clear, helpful, very well prepared and thorough as an instructor, while her own work and teaching samples were inspiring. Just what I needed".
Jennie from Westbury (embellisher of Clothing and Bags)
"Jenni was very thorough. She asked me about what I already knew, what I wanted to learn and what my project was. I did not feel at all uncomfortable about my lack of knowledge and skill. She also looked at my samples so that she knew where to start. To help me decide what I wanted to learn she brought out some of her own work to show me on how free machine embroidery can be used. Jenni demonstrated techniques that were new and potentially useful to me and gave me time to practice them myself, having given my sewing machine a quick check over. We talked about so many things that I needed to know, that after the three hours my head was crammed full. I really enjoyed my session and found it very worthwhile. If I need further help with free machine embroidery I won’t hesitate to visit her again".
