Sue Spargo



Sue Spargo was the guest speaker at our quilt guild this past Wednesday evening. Yesterday Sue taught classes for Saffron Hill and Old Crimson Clove, and I was fortunate to take the Saffron Hill class.

Our guild website guru, Judy, took lots of terrific pictures at the class. Imagine a large portion of Sue's website spread out in front of you as she brought along many samples, fabrics, kits, patterns, and embellishments to admire and purchase. It was an inspiring day from a wonderful teacher. Stay tuned as my background "grows" trees, flowers and builds a house.

My pictures show the Thursday class, Sue explaining the different techniques used to embellish and my background piece for Saffron Hill. Sue challenged me to step outside of my comfort zone with these fabrics, and I really like it now.
