Author Biography

Jenniffer Taylor studied Dance and Visual Arts at the Northern Contemporary School of Dance and then completed her BA Hons Degree at Brighton University. She enjoys painting, cooking and photography as well as being the vocalist and lyricist for a band called Snooty Bobs. Her addiction to sewing began when she decided 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 but was unable to get.

Jenni’s husband Kirk recognized her passion for sewing and secretly submitted her application for the Great British Sewing Bee 2014. After being eliminated at week 5, Jenni was determined to make something of the experience she had gained from being on the show, and she is now a prominent and popular personality on the ‘sewing scene’, running ‘sewing revolution’ workshops in and around the Midlands where she lives, presenting on Create & Craft and being featured in several sewing magazines, exhibitions and shows.
