TV Guests - Jenny Wilding Cardon


Jenny Wilding Cardon has been designing since high school, when she would create eccentric, rebellious items of clothing and make her friends wear them to school. After graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in Women's Studies, Jenny spent three years with her husband in Seattle. A crux of American quiltmaking, the city introduced her to the vibrant, varied art, along with the many coworkers she befriended while working as a copywriter for Martingale & Company/That Patchwork Place. Jenny's passion for quiltmaking inspired her to publish a book of baby-quilt designs, The Little Box of Baby Quilts (That Patchwork Place, 2007). Her work has appeared in McCall's Quilting and Quilt Magazine's Simple Quilts and Sewing, as well as on the covers of American Patchwork & Quilting's Quilts and More and Quilter's Newsletter's Quilt It for Kids. On the web, Jenny's designs have been featured on Sew, Mama, Sew!, BurdaStyle, and Craftzine.

Jenny now lives in a small farming community north of Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, Brett, and her two sons, Jack and Charlie. Along with sewing of all sorts, Jenny's current interests include eating store-bought birthday cakes, listening to classic rock and current soul, writing and knitting. She writes about her sewing, thrifting and family life at
