Jenny studied at The Scottish College of Textiles in Galashiels graduating with a degree in clothing and footwear and a diploma in textile technology. On leaving her studies she set up a successful boutique, Bella Ragazza , specialising in off the peg, made to measure and clothing alterations. Short spells in the wardrobe departments of film and theatre followed. For the past 18 years she has worked in the Wedding Industry mostly fitting and altering gowns but also making bespoke items including prom and flowergirl dresses and a variety of accessories. She has kept up to date with further training from Benjamin Roberts.

Jenny has started her own business – jennibobbins which takes her back to her first enterprise in offering made to measure goods and a full range of alteration services.
