A Swedish exile having spent the previous 18 years in London and Sheffield, Jenny Haynes studied pattern cutting and tailoring in her native Stockholm. Soon after, she followed her passion for fabrics and moved to London to study fashion and textiles at the London College of Fashion. She went on to develop her own label 'Papper, Sax, Sten' (Paper, Scissors, Stone), creating award-winning designs that reflect her many different influences. Her bespoke quilts and furnishings are recognised for their clean and simple, mid-century modern design. Jenny mixes rich colours with pastels and is not scared of a colour clash, often using her trademark curves together with solid fabrics, while remaining faithful to her Scandi' roots.

Jenny's quilts and patterns have been published in numerous magazines, and two of her quilts won awards at QuiltCon 2019 in Nashville. When Jenny isn’t designing her curvy and quirky quilt patterns, she teaches at the V&A as well as giving talks and workshops for guilds and textile venues in the UK and abroad.
