Meet The Jenny Stitches Blog Team

Hello and welcome to the shiny new Jenny Stitches Blog!

As soon as I decided to start this blog, I knew I would need some help! Apart from the fact there there's simply not enough hours in the day for me to sew up all the garments, I also want to be able to show you how different fabrics and patterns can look amazing on different ages, body types and a variety of individual styles.

Enter the blog team! A huge number of applications were received, it took a long time to narrow them down but I have selected a final ten bloggers who I just know will inspire you to get your sewing machine fired up with their beautiful makes.

Without further ado, here are your blog team!

I live in Mount Gambier South Australia and have 5 grown children and 10 grand children and love sewing for family and friends. I have been sewing for over 50 years and can’t stop,I love sewing dresses and tops and little girls dress just finished 18 for friends. I subscribe to Rachel, Mary-Ellen Judi and Crystal and enjoy them showing their makes. I am retired now but have been a cook, retail assistant and a lead light and tiffany artist.
