Sue Spargo workshop


Quilter Sue Spargo spoke to the Charlotte Quilters Guild this week, and gave a workshop today. She does marvelous folk-art style appliqué with mostly woven wools and some cotton and upholstery cotton fabric. Then she adds lots of fun embellishments with beads, ribbons, ric-rac and wool yarn. Her sister Wendy hand-dyes all the fabric and makes beautiful sterling jewelry based on her designs. Sue is a very kind and generous teacher, and I really enjoyed her workshop, and the chance to see her gorgeous work close up. Thanks, Sue! To see more of her work, go to www.suespargo.com. She sells her patterns, books, kits, wools and jewelry on her website. The photo above shows me with Sue and her “Greenbrier” quilt. The photo below shows the little pillow “pin keeper” I made from one of her kits.
