Jenny Matthews

"Can you teach quilling to the children?" This request from the Head Teacher in an Elementary School in England set Jenny to work learning yet another Teachers Aid skill, first mastering the techniques herself then passing the basics on to the children.
Quilled greeting cards for friends and relations followed and then on emigrating to Canada in 1996 she took the first steps into professional quilling. Her range of work includes framed pictures, greeting cards, photo-frames and three-dimensional figures.
Jenny works also to special commissions including cards to commemorate special occasions and framed wedding or birth announcements.
Jenny’s work can be seen at the Gift Shop of the Sooke Region Museum and purchased from there. She also exhibits at occasional craft shows.
Jenny does not do group classes in quilling but is happy to give one on one (or two) lessons in basic quilling techniques.
