There is nothing quite like owning a stylish, unique handmade purse that you have created yourself.
Jenny Rolfe, author of Handmade Embroidered Bags, has used quilting and free machine embroidery techniques to create a stunning collection of purses for all occasions.
Jenny Rolfe is a textile artist with a background in quilting. Feeling restricted by traditional quilting, she took a course in design and discovered a whole new world of colour and form. She began to make her own fabric using dyeing, painting, printing, stamping, sponging, stencilling and free machine embroidery techniques, and moved on from quilts to wall hangings. Later she combined her passion for textiles with her lifelong love of bags. Jenny has won many prizes and her work has been widely exhibited in the UK and USA. She teaches classes for quilting groups and Embroiderers' Guild groups and has had many articles published in patchwork and quilting magazines.
