Sue won a copy of Simply Stylish by Laura Wilhelm in our March new member giveaway.
Sue tells us about herself and her sewing. "I am married with 2 daughters. I developed my passion for sewing from my grandmother, who was seamstress, and learnt to sew aged 12 on an old singer treddle powered sewing machine, and have sewn ever since."
"Over the last 10 years or so I have concentrated on hand sewing completing a range of blackwork pieces. About a month ago I decided to give quilting a go and I absolutely love it. It did prove rather expensive as I needed to replace my 20 year old sewing machine (honest) and bought a Janome Memory Craft 6600….. "
"I have almost finished my first quilt, which is for my youngest daughters 13th birthday in April, and have ideas for at least another 3 in mind!"
"I found the website whilst looking for a magazine and was attracted to the fact that it is easy to navigate and offers something to both the new and the more experienced quilter. I specifically like the projects as they offer many varied ideas for adults and children alike. My youngest daughter inherited my old machine and is now learning to sew."
We hope you finish your first quilt soon Sue, and very much look forward to seeing a picture soon!
