My Story

​My name is Jenny Harrison, I have been involved with fashion and soft furnishings for more than 40 years.

Originally I trained as a fashion designer and worked for a company designing for Marks and Spencers. 

Following on from that I designed sheepskin and suede and leather wear for 4 years.

I was a partner in a knitwear company, for more than 10 years,  until I had my 2 children.

 

With the children at home I studied a City and Guilds Soft Furnishing course which seemed to be a natural extension to my sewing and design skills, at this time  I also achieved my Certificate in Education, which enabled me to teach adults in my two 

subject areas.

I taught City and Guilds courses to Level 4 at Somerset College for more than 10 years.

When adult education courses were affected by funding from the government in 2008 I was made redundant,

so I then set up and continue to run 3 sewing classes a week locally. 

I also teach workshops for Somerset County Council at Dillington House.

I design and make bespoke items for clients, such as curtains, blinds,  window seats, loose covers, cushions, wedding dresses and special occasion outfits.
