“But unless we are creators, we are not fully alive. ” – Madeleine L’Engle
Hi, I am Jenny. Jenny Henry Designs was launched in 2002 with the hopes of revolutionizing needlepoint design. Turns out, when I got around in the industry I started finding a lot of amazing work and I realized that I am only playing a small roll in a revolution that is exploding around me. People are bursting with the desire to create and share wonderful things all across the world in all genres of craft. I am excited to be part of this great craft movement.
Before needlepoint came into my life I was always a creator. My first business was a paper doll service that I began in fifth grade. I would take orders from the girls in my class and then go home and make them charging them a small fee of around 25 cents depending on how elaborate the order was. It was thrilling.
I always knew I wanted a life that involved making and sharing the joys of making. Sometimes what we make is less important than the actual process. So, lately I am focusing more on how to make needlepoint more accessible to people so more can enjoy the art of making.
Through this blog I will share some projects, updates and musings as well as explore some inspiring goings on in the world of craft especially those pertaining to needlework.
