I am a quilt designer and teacher who is obsessed with curves and, in particular, the Drunkard’s Path Block with its unlimited design possibilities.
I currently teach a variety of unique curve workshops online, either arranged by me (you can find them here) or by Guilds and groups across the globe (find a list of upcoming gigs below).
Wether you are booking a class and/or a talk for your Guild, looking to offer the customers of your quilt shop an exciting workshop or you are wanting to sew together with a bunch of friends, I’d love to hear from your. You can find my current classes below but I am also very happy to tailor a class for your wants and needs.
Bookings for in person teaching is currently on hold.

The Evolution of a Curve- A talk by Jenny Haynes of Papper, Sax, Sten
Jenny gives shape to curvy quilts and this is a fittingly meandering journey about Jenny’s development as a maker. Her life started in a 70s Sweden with rag rugs and hand-painted bark baskets, via London and a fashion industry that demands that you step on the orange, to a Yorkshire full of Drunkard’s Path quilts with holes and dowels.
It is also a story about the evolution of the curve and how this simple shape is picked up, experimented with and then either discarded (natural selection) or survives to become a building block for something (if Jenny has her way) more elaborate perhaps.
Jenny would say the curve evolves independently and is taking her on a journey rather than the other way around.
After this talk, you can judge for yourselves.
