A Swedish exile having spent the previous 18 years in London and Sheffield, Jenny Haynes (née Nilsson) studied Pattern Cutting and Tailoring in her native Stockholm. Soon after, she followed her passion for fabrics and moved to London to study Fashion and Textiles at the London College of Fashion. She went on to develop her own label 'Papper, Sax, Sten' (that's 'Paper, Scissors, Stone' in case you're wondering!), creating award winning designs that reflect her many different influences.
In 2017 London’s V&A, along with the publishers Thames & Hudson, asked her to contribute to the book ‘Patchwork & Quilting’ - the first publication of their Maker’s Guide series.
When Jenny isn’t designing her curvy and quirky quilt patterns, she teaches at the V&A as well as giving talks and workshops for Guilds and textile venues in the UK and abroad.
