Workshops and Tuition
There have been changes. I moved out of my studio last year and therefore no longer have a suitable space for running workshops.
However, at present, I am able to offer tuition at my home on a one-to-one basis or to small groups of friends. Dates would be arranged to mutually suit us all.
I shall be concentrating on teaching my specialism - Free-Machine Embroidery. This is the technique I use the most in my own work. I know it inside-out and upside-down (quite literally) so I have plenty of tips and advice to share with you. I have 18 years teaching experience in a variety of educational locations, to see where please click Teaching Experience.
For images of this addictive and absorbing technique please see my Flickr website
The cost is £16 per hour (MINIMUM 2½ HOUR Session), which can be designed to suit your own requirements. All materials are inclusive. If I'm travelling over ten miles to teach you, there will be a small extra charge per mile for every extra mile.

am happy to recommend Jenni. I asked Jenni 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 is a very helpful and skilled enabler. I learnt a lot of useful techniqes 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)
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
with Jenni and found it very worthwhile. If I need further help with
free machine embroidery I won’t hesitate to visit her again.
