Does the name Jenni Smith sound familiar? It should!
The author of Quilting with Liberty Fabrics: 15 Quilts Celebrating 145 Years in Fabric and host of our new Virtual Show-and-Tell series has been very active in the Quiltfolk community.
What you may not know about Jenni, however, is that she is also a pattern designer — running her own studio and business in the UK! Jenni’s online video tutorials are loved by makers worldwide. She is very passionate about getting people started on their dressmaking and quilting journeys with her fun, energetic, and down-to-earth approach to teaching.
Jenni’s most popular pattern over the years has been her beautiful Hepworth Apron. But we are bringing you more than just her elegant pattern: We have partnered with Jenni to offer Quiltfolk readers an exclusive apron kit that includes the finest fabrics one can use on this project.
A Touch of London
We couldn’t possibly collaborate on this special kit without incorporating some of Jenni’s beloved Liberty quilting cottons. That said, the Hepworth Apron Kit comes in one of two colors (Navy or Oyster) and includes the printed pattern, free access to a video tutorial, a woven Jenni Smith label, 1.75 yards of Essex Linen from Robert Kaufman, a fat quarter of Liberty quilting cotton for lining the pockets, plus matching thread from Aurifil!
More About the Hepworth Apron
You don’t have to be experienced in making garments to enjoy sewing this multi-use apron. The Hepworth Apron is perfect for all creative endeavors — in the studio, garden, and/or kitchen. Its design is functional and flattering, with the option to add your own personal twist to the pockets or front band with a contrast fabric or embroidery.
The Hepworth Apron is a fun, artistic project that will add a boost of fashion and comfort when you are ready to step into your creative space. These aprons also make wonderful gifts for family and friends — for years to come!
Free access to a full video tutorial of every process you need to complete the project can be found on Jenni’s site. Click HERE to access now.
Looking for just the pattern?
While the full kit is hard to resist, if you would prefer to use your own fabrics, you can also purchase the pattern on its own HERE.
