Jen has been crafting since she was tiny, inspired by her Gran to knit, crochet, embroider, sew and make buttons. She's spent the last 35 years with something woolly in her hands.
Jen set Beaker Button up in 2011, after years of dreaming of owning a yarn shop. This gave her the time and resources to really explore Dorset buttons and what you can do with them.
Jen has written four button books, and several smaller instruction booklets to get people addicted to making buttons. She teaches classes all over the country in various forms of button making. They are without a doubt the crafting love of her life.
Jen is currently planning the next Dorset button craft book, and developing a new range of kits with art buttons, like her my tree of life hanging button.
Why not take a class with Jen at this Year's Festiwool event, and pay a reduced entry fee.
