Brilliant idea as always from Jennie on how to do the fixing stitches with the machine.
Using the Sewing Machine with a fixing stitch
Jennie does not like to handle a sewing needle unless she is putting it into her machine that is, so she has developed a way of anchoring her tucks, twiddles and folds with an anchoring stitch on the machine (which you KNOW has been tried and tested.!)
More about Jennie Rayment
The World’s only Twiddler, Fiddler, Nipper, Tucker, Manipulator and Manoeuvrer of material!
This skinnyish, red-haired, slightly wacky Brit is totally obsessed with ‘Nipping and Tucking’ – fabric manipulation and surface texture. Unique in her field, she’s now internationally known for her quick, simple, innovative and original techniques with manipulated material and her hilarious lectures with real ‘Strip, Show and Tell’.
Jennie teaches a wide variety of classes for all levels and abilities of sewers from patchworkers, quilters and embroiderers to fashion, soft furnishing and home décor enthusiasts.
Although, much of her work is created in simple calico known as muslin in the USA, her elegant ideas and natty notions may be adapted for any type of fabric and used to make quilts, wallhangings, boxes, baskets, cushions, table linen and of course fashion garments and accessories.
Indeed, anyone interested in any form of needlework will be totally captivated by her deviously ingenious textural designs and can benefit from the wealth of creative ideas arising from her magic manipulations.
With six books on fabric manipulation techniques – all still in print, many articles and a variety of patterns including a twiddled and fiddled Block of the Month quilt, Jennie’s material magic goes on and on.
