Sue is a quilter, fabric dyer, teacher, vendor, and a quilt judge. She experimented with various techniques and styles of quilt making over the years. On her third or fourth quilt, she started going her own way and altering designs and patterns. She wanted her quilts to be unique. Thus, she began changing the colors, dyeing her own fabric, and using different borders and settings.

Sue lives in West Michigan, where she vends, judges, teaches, and lectures for quilt shows and guilds in the region. She is a member of the West Michigan Quilt Guild, National Association of Certified Quilt Judges, American Quilter’s Society, Surface Design Association, and International Machine Quilter’s Association, Studio Art Quilt Association.
