ONLINE CLASS! Skinny Inset Curves Workshop with Jenny Haynes


This class will be run as an online class if we are not able to hold it in person due to Covid-19. You will need to have your own tools in addition to your materials for the class. Full details follow. Our cancellation policy applies.

In this intermediate patchwork class you'll learn how to piece super skinny inset curves! This exact and intriguing technique allows you to add a line drawing effect to your sewing. This can be used instead of piping on garments (think yoke or pocket detail), in improv piecing or as a block in a cushion or a quilt. 

On the day we’ll be making a block using Jenny’s templates. You get to play with the 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
