Jenny Adin-Christie

Jenny is originally from Derbyshire, England. She has been practising her love of embroidery since childhood, learning from a family with an inherent passion for a broad range of craft skills.

Jenny was exhaustively trained as a professional embroiderer on the prestigious three year Apprenticeship at the Royal School of Needlework, Hampton Court Palace, graduating with distinction in 1999 and winning the school’s prizes for silk shading and Coronation Goldwork.

Having developed and managed her own business concurrently with her RSN work since 2002, Jenny embarked on her freelance career in 2008. She continues to teach at the RSN but also teaches a broad range of techniques throughout the UK and beyond, completing teaching tours in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Canada and India. She has been teaching for Creative Experiences in France for many years. 

Jenny works to commission, producing a diverse range of new work, together with the repair of antique textiles. Her work has included playing a key role in the RSN team which produced all of the applied lace panels for the Duchess of Cambridge’s famed royal wedding dress and contributing to the regalia for HM King Charles I and HM Queen Camilla at the coronation. 

She also designs and produces an ever increasing range of unique embroidery kits, in stumpwork, metal thread, Elizabethan and whitework embroidery, closely inspired by historical techniques.

Jenny's class as always was outstanding. The food was amazing, the rooms were great as always. I have attended embroidery courses several time at Alpine Experience, with Nadine and the team when Jenny Adin-Christie was the teacher. I have always found the experience extremely good and Jenny as a teacher is excellent. She is patient, talented and gives all attendees her undivided attention. I have learned many new techniques and stiching methods and look forward to being able to attend more classes in years to come.

Thank you so much, I had a lovely time at the chalet. I loved Jenny’s class, and it was great to meet you all.

The service and the food were wonderful as was the accommodation. The class was very good too. Everyone was so friendly and really could not do enough to make sure that everything went smoothly.

You are aware that I know Jenny so my expectations of her class were well met. As always she was a brilliant teacher and shared her time around all the students well.

I can only reiterate what I said on leaving and that is that I had a really magical time. The stitching holiday in such a divine location with your thoughtful care and fabulous food could not be a better fit for me. You go to great lengths to make us all feel at home and looked after - an important factor for the more 'mature' lady travelling alone! You deal with our eccentricities with calm assurance and you have great patience. The food is, as we all must have said on numerous occasions, superb and portion sizes just right. I will live on the memory of that for some time. All this, and our esteemed teacher, what more can anyone want.

The stitching studio had enough room for everyone but there was also plenty of space around generally so you could escape from the crowd if you wanted to. The organisation of the work stations and provision of drinks/cakes etc was great.

A second relaxing holiday in Chalet Erica, stunning scenery, great weather, excellent tutor with a beautiful project to work on. So well looked after by Mark and Nadine with amazing food and the all important afternoon cake.. Can't wait to return.
