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 my collaboration with fellow Canadian and rad designer Libs Elliott launched Friday June 14th - details here!
All of my sewing adventures can be seen on my blog Fabric, Ink.
