A Hole Lotta Luv Workshop with Jenny Haynes

In this intermediate patchwork workshop we’ll play with perspective whilst learning techniques for sewing angles and curves! With use of angles and a few variations of the Drunkard’s Path block we build what Jenny calls ‘holes and pegs in boxes’. But there will be lots of room for creative interpretation and help from from Jenny to build your own block.

We'll cut curves using Jenny's Drunkard's Path templates and learn tips and tricks on how to sew no-pin machine-pieced curves in different sizes. Piecing the blocks and achieving perfectly matching seams is made easy with the templates!

    You get to play with Jenny’s Quilting Templates and get a 10% discount on all templates if you decide you ‘need’ your own set.

    About your teacher: A Swedish exile having spent the previous 18 years in Hackney, Jenny Haynes (n̩e Nilsson) studied Pattern Cutting and Tailoring in her native Stockholm. Soon after, she followed her passion for fabrics and moved to London to study Fashion and Textiles at the London College of Fashion. She went on to develop her own label 'Papper, Sax, Sten' (that's 'Paper, Scissors, Stone' if you're wondering!), working with textiles that reflect these different influences. Her bespoke quilts and furnishings are recognised for their clean and simple, mid-century modern design. Often mixing vintage fabrics with modern prints, rich colours with pastels, wool and silk with linen and cotton, while remaining faithful to her Scandinavian roots. This was recognised in Summer '15 when Jenny was invited by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, along with 18 other Swedish designers, to be a part of Heal's Swedish Summer Exhibition. Heal's having a long history of promoting Swedish design with exhibitions in 1923, '51 and '71. Find out more about Jenny and her stunning designs at Pappersaxsten.com.
