About the Event
About Jen Kingwell:
Midwife by trade who turned her stitching addiction into a career. After decades of exploring all areas of the craft world, Jen bought her first patchwork store in 1999. Surrounding herself daily with walls of fabric encouraged her to explore colour combinations and push the boundaries when discovering her signature style: which she describes as “traditional blocks with a modern twist” It’s Jen’s use of colour that makes her quilts instantly recognisable. She is a scrap quilter and the more fabrics she can include in any one project the happier she is. Hand stitching is her favourite hobby, and teaching all the tips and tricks she knows brings her great joy. Author, fabric and quilt designer, Jen now travels the world teaching and lecturing but always loves returning to her family and store - Amitie Textiles in Torquay Australia. Set against one of Australia’s most picturesque locations, the Amitie space is large enough to fulfill Jen’s dream of combin -ing a huge range of all things patchwork, and a cafe with small batch baking and local coffee. In this presentation Jen goes through her extensive body of work, and talks about her inspiration behind each quilt. She will also give a tour of her shop Amitie, and allows time for questions.
