About the Author
Jenniffer Taylor's addiction to sewing began when she decided to design and make her own wedding dress. The experience unlocked her creativity and for the first time she found she was able to express her individual style, empowering her to create garments that she always wanted but was unable to get.
Jenni's husband Kirk recognised her passion for sewing and secretly submitted an application for the Great British Sewing Bee 2014. After the show finished, Jenni was determined to make something of the experience and she is now a prominent and popular personality on the sewing scene, running 'sewing revolution' workshops, presenting on TV and being featured in sewing magazines, exhibitions and shows.
Jenni's first book, Girl with a Sewing Machine, was published in 2017.
