Originally from Scotland, Jenny Rushmore is a curvy sewing blogger who traveled the world and now lives in Boston, Massachusetts. Since she learned to sew at the “ripe old age of 30,” Jenny has been blogging at Cashmerette. Last year she co-founded the Curvy Sewing Collective, a site dedicated to sewing inspiration, advice and body positivity for curvy women. Sewing transformed Jenny’s body image, and now she’s passionate about sharing that experience with others.
Her latest venture is the release of the Cashmerette Curvy Sketchbooks, a line of sketchbooks with curvy figure outlines to help sewists and fashion designers plan their next make, and record notes on things like adjustments they made.
Jenny has great style and is a skilled garment sewist. We appreciate all the work that she and the other members of the Curvy Sewing Collective are doing to make the online sewing community a body-positive space that is inclusive of people of all shapes and sizes. We’re excited that she’ll be helping to judge this contest!
