Jennie Rayment
England

INTERNATIONAL INSTRUCTOR - Jennie is internationally renown for her unusual and novel fabric manipulation techniques. From Origami to fabric-sculpture, quilts to garments, Jennie’s unique designs are for all. She teaches, lectures and exhibits worldwide. Now an acclaimed demonstrator on UK television, Create and Craft. Seven books plus several informative DVD’s all feature her ingenious constructions. Sometimes called the ‘Muslin Mistress’ as she often works in this medium. Her work is different and looks deceptively difficult but you will discover - it is all a con - it’s just sew easy when you know how! It’s just engineering in material with some added fabric fiddling!
