Growing up with creative parents, Sue was exposed to many pastimes as a child, including needlework, sewing, painting and woodwork, but not quilting. Sue spins a delightful tale of her journey into this wonderfully creative world - from learning to quilt, to working as creative director for a leading fabric wholesaler, to discovering her true passion for fibre and textile artistry – with plenty of eye candy for inspiration!

Using the  dyed or inked fabrics of mine from the workshop.  (One of the best I’ve ever taken by the way!  Thank you)


I also got some of the “Gloss” medium you recommended and used it on the water, after I’d done the stitching!  Great tip, I know I’ll use it a lot!


I spent today reworking my studio to include space for inking and dying.  It looks fabulous and everything I need is handy!

I hope you will come back to the Island again soon with some new projects, tricks and inspiration!  I’ll be first in line to sign up!
