Hello! My name is Jenn. I’m a graphic designer, a textile and surface pattern designer and a fabric obsessed sewist living in rural Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
My love for fabric and patterns started when, as a young teen, my grandmother took me to a local fabric shop that had an entire wall dedicated to vintage fabrics. I took a few select yards home and re-made some of my favourite clothes using those fabrics and a 1960’s Singer Featherweight. My mom taught me to sew on that old Singer and also on her old beige Kenmore that’s as old as I am but still runs like a dream.
I sew to stay sane but mainly because I value handmade. I want my girls to grow up appreciating the skill and time that people put into their handmade creations as much as I do. I’m all about supporting local; local businesses, makers and artists in whichever form they come.
Lately I’ve been finalizing a few quilt patterns to be published as well as working on a few fabric collections. You might also find me around the Ottawa Modern Quilt scene, photographing a kitchen or driving by on the side of a moving van.
