A little bit about Jennie

My name is Jennie Booker. My passion is and always has been embroidery, dressmaking and art. I was taught to sew at an early age by my mother and then in later life I developed my interests further and took City & Guilds in Art Design and Creative Embroidery Part 1 & 2. I have attended short courses at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court in London for Embroidery and Gold Work. I also have a Further Education Teaching Certificate. 

 

While a member of the Portsea Island Embroiders Guild in Portsmouth, my mother and myself were privileged to work  on the  the panel of the Bayeux  Tapestrey with the other members of the Guild. Which is now exhibited in the D Day Museum  in Southsea Hampshire.

I have always had a keen interest in the history of Heirloom sewing, embroidery and fashion through the years.   I am also interested in anything which has style and flare from bygone years and vintage.

I am married, with 2 grown-up children, who have beautiful homes and partners of their own, and 1 adorable Grandson who helps me expand my imagination into the wonderful world of Fantasy and creativity.
