Author Bio

Jenniffer Taylor's sewing journey began with her ultimate project: 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 to wear. Jenni's husband Kirk recognized her passion and after secretly submitting an application for her, she appeared as a contestant on the second series of The Great British Sewing Bee in 2014.

Jenni is now a prominent and popular sewing influencer and author, who teaches dressmaking both online and offline. As well as demonstrating on television and events, she also designs her own range of sewing patterns. Jenni's first book, Girl with a Sewing Machine, was published in 2017.
