In case we haven’t met before, I’m Jen Johnson and I run Sew Forest of Dean, teaching all aspects of sewing by machine or by hand. I’m also a crazy cat lady, wife to Ed and Mum to identical twins Oscar and Charlie.

I am fortunate to have grown up in an age where sewing was part of the school curriculum and I have therefore been making “stuff” since a very young age.

I went on to study Textiles at Herefordshire College and have been exploring new ideas and techniques ever since.

The majority of my workshops and courses take place in my purpose-built garden studio in Clearwell and my aim is very simple – to help get people sewing.

So please have a good browse through my photos and website. If you don’t see a workshop you are looking for, do get in touch and let me know and I’ll design a workshop for you. I also offer private tuition by the hour if workshops aren’t your thing. Thanks for reading to the end
