Who is Jenni Smith?

Jenni Smith Ltd is a studio based in a historic mill in the centre of Ilkley, West Yorkshire.  Her aim is to share our love of sewing and the endless possibilities of cloth and thread.

Jenni teaches studio classes in dressmaking, quilting and textile art. We are developing a range of to provide all the right tools to complete a project and build the skills and confidence of our lovely customers.

Jenni has been sewing for the last 25 years.  She grew up in a house where her mum and nan stitched upholstery for the caravans and trailer tents designed by her grandfather.  She studied History of Art and Italian at University before working as an Associate Producer in documentaries. In 2006 she spent a year in Toronto where she learned how to quilt and her love of dressmaking grew with the birth of her daughter a few years later.

For the past three years Jenni has been taught by sewing veteran Ann Ladbury.  She has also developed her own series of textile art and has made original pieces for Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis and US artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon.

Jenni’s goal is to share her knowledge and enthusiasm, inspiring a new generation of people  to embrace the handmade revolution

Here’s what Jenni has to say about the Hepworth,

What’s in a name?

As well as sewing, one of my major passions is the History of Art.  I studied the subject for my degree at University, combined with Italian.

Sculptor and artist Barbara Hepworth was born in Yorkshire, where our studio is based. Her work is a constant source of inspiration and I grew up admiring the beautiful contours of her sculpted forms, and use of natural materials.
