Skinny Inset Strips Workshop with Jenny Haynes
A MASK OR FACE COVERING IS REQUIRED IN THE SHOP INCLUDING DURING OUR CLASSES.
In this techniques class you’ll learn to sew no-pin curves and skinny inset strips using Jenny's Drunkard’s Path templates. This exact and intriguing technique allows you to add a line drawing effect to your sewing. This can be used for improv or precision piecing.
Jenny will show you how to sew and trim the different blocks that make up the Wax Lyrical Quilt pattern plus her new Kenny and Dolly Quilt pattern. She will also show you lots of options on how to make your own version and how to best use the different blocks in your own design.
Paper templates are provided for use in class. If you'd like to purchase acrylic templates you’ll receive a 10% class discount* code upon booking the class. The Acrylic templates are highly recommended for ease and accuracy, especially if you are a stickler for precision.
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.
