Hello! I'm Jenn.

I’m a graphic designer, a modern quilter and a fabric obsessed sewist living in rural Ottawa, Ontario Canada. I'm also the maker behind Sew Fine Thread Gloss.

I've been sewing since I can remember. I was taught to sew on an old Singer Featherweight and have dabbled in various forms of textile arts my entire life. Growing up around family members who sewed, I was always curious about the various trinkets and notions that were used and collected. I remember digging through my grandmother's sewing kit and pulling out a gnarled chunk of beeswax, later finding out what she used it for - conditioning her threads.

For years I've used beeswax in my own sewing, and now I'm sharing my thread gloss with the rest of the world! Sew Fine Thread Gloss is a beeswax based scented (and unscented) thread conditioner to help make your hand-sewing less tangly and smelling fantastic! I currently wholesale to independent quilt/fabric shops in Canada, the US and overseas and have a few exciting secret projects on the horizon so stay tuned!

My first Sew-lebrity collaboration with Carolyn Friedlander launched in the fall of 2018 – check out the details here! I've sinced worked on a limited edition collaboration with UK textile design Karen Lewis - details here! And I've got another collaboration launching Friday June 14th so stay tuned to my IG page and sign up for my newsletter on my blog to be the first in the know!

All of my sewing adventures can be seen on my blog Fabric, Ink. 

To get in touch or inquire about a future collaboration or project, please send me a message via the contact page.
