River Quilt with Jenny Haynes at Purple Stitches, North Hampshire, UK

Conquer curved piecing and learn to machine-sew beautiful curves in this exciting class! Our teacher, Jenny Haynes of Papper, Sax, Sten, will teach you how to cut, sew and press curves and create a curvy River Quilt by using her no-pin technique and custom Drunkardspath templates.

As part of the class fee you'll receive the templates that has been custom made by Jenny for her sunflower quilt. The two set of three templates can also be used for a huge range of drunkards path designs. The templates are worth £40 alone.

About your teacher:  A Swedish exile having spent the previous 18 years in Hackney, London, Jenny Haynes (née 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!), creating designs that reflect her 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 here:
