THE SUZY Q
MACHINE EMBROIDERED GIFTS, CUSHIONS, BUNTING
I use a freehand machine embroidery method to draw and appliqué designs. I use cotton and linen base in the main and majority of my appliqué is using Liberty tana lawn. I like to let the fabric influence my designs and use the pattern and colour of the fabric lead me into pictures.
I have always enjoyed sewing, making many of my own clothes during the 70s. I came back to it when I started to teach my daughter and ended up making a wedding dress she designed for herself. I had wanted to try freehand machine embroidery and started experimenting, my daughter pushed me into setting up a small stall at a fair and so it began.
