A Desperate Housewife’s Quilt Journey


This humorous presentation, showing dozens of Sue’s quilts, takes you through her development as a quilt maker in the two main quilt styles that Sue loves and is known for: Intricate Pieced Quilts and Machine Pieced Landscape--Pictorial Quilts. Emphasizing her more recent quilts, Sue discusses several quilts in detail: the importance of design, color, fabric choices, and quilting patterns. The lecture ends with several story quilts that are guaranteed to make you giggle.

The Ins and Outs of Sewing Machine Needles and Thread


We use them every day, but may not really understand the differences and uses of the variety of machine needles and thread in our quilt making and machine quilting. In this one hour lecture, the Needles and Thread section of Sue's Quilting 101A workshop will be discussed in detail, with individual handouts. Everyone, even the experienced quilter, will learn something new from Sue, who has a degree in Textile Sciences.
