The ‘Calico Queen’, Jennie Rayment, is joining Crafter’s Companion as a new brand ambassador.
World-renowned quilter Jennie has more than 30 years’ experience in the needlecraft industry. She will star as a guest host for Crafter’s Companion on Create and Craft, with a special focus on quilting, and her first official show will be April 21.
Jennie kick-started her career at one of the world’s biggest quilting shows in Houston, Texas and has never looked back. Known for her expert patchwork, applique and quilting skills with unique ‘nipping and tucking’ fabric effects, entertaining presenting style and nine books under her belt, Jennie is a global sewing star.
Previously, Jennie has been involved with successful workshops and classes at Crafter’s Companion’s stores in Newton Aycliffe, Chesterfield and Evesham, in addition to a busy schedule of shows, exhibitions and festivals across the UK. Jennie will continue with her diary of classes, in addition to assisting with Crafter’s Companion’s online activity and hosting regular Create and Craft shows.
Jennie Rayment said: “I am absolutely delighted to be appointed a brand ambassador for Crafter’s Companion. It’s another adventure with lots of new and exciting challenges, opportunities and products to play with. I am looking forward to a lot of fun-filled fabric fiddling with a wealth of creative conundrums and can’t wait to start this new journey with such a great company.”
Sara Davies MBE, founder of Crafter’s Companion added: “Jennie is a powerhouse in the world of quilting and rightly so. She has an infectious personality, a wealth of experience and a range of unique abilities, so it’s fantastic to have her on board as a brand ambassador.
“Jennie puts so much fun and laughter into learning and that really resonates with Crafter’s Companion’s values. I am excited to watch Jennie on her new Create and Craft slot and, with her dedicated fan following, I am sure I’m not the only one excited to see what she does next.”
