Magical memories & Colourful CushionsBy: Gemma Thompson She can even turn your child’s art into cushions! It is such a simple idea, I know how hard it is to part with clothes that hold precious memories of time with my daughter or other special times, but keeping them can mean them being left in a box rarely to be seen! But meeting Jenny Cooper has shown me the solution! Jenny was taught to sew and knit by her mum while she was a child. 10 years ago she began quilting after taking one of Karin Hellaby’s (owner of Quilters Haven in Wickham Market) renowned courses, her talent was swiftly recognised, in fact so swiftly that her first quilt was actually featured in Karin’s next book! She was still working at the time so at first it was just a hobby, then she made her first memory quilt from her daughter’s baby clothes and straight away she had people asking if she could do the same for them. She’s been producing memory quilts and cushions ever since. So taking these outgrown clothes to Jenny means you can enjoy these treasured memories, as she can turn them into beautiful, unique quilts that can be used everyday. She can even turn your child’s art into cushions! She is always happy to provide a no obligation quote as she finds it very rewarding to produce custom pieces for a quilt just as you would like it. She offers a range of off the peg soft furnishings too. Her newest cushions will certainly brighten up the winter months to come. Made from 100% cotton they come in three different colour schemes complete with a feather pad for just £15 each. You can find Jenny’s work every Saturday at Orford Country Market, Orford Town Hall from 9.30am 12.30pm. Her stall comprises of a selection of her cushions, kits, and a quilt or two. She also sells her homemade cakes, chutneys, and pickles as well as free-range eggs from her lovely chickens!
