Branching Out

Trunk Show

           

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!
