About your Tutor:
Suzanne Fisher has been teaching patchwork and quilting for more than five years. She has been using fabric, needles and thread to create things since childhood. She made her first quilt from a kit bought at the Ardingly Quilt show in the early 1990s and has not looked back since. She studied and achieved City and Guild courses in both Embroidery and Patchwork and Quilting. She has made quilts from patterns, ideas gained from different cultures, the World around her and from random ideas scribbled down in a notebook. She uses dyes and printing to make her own fabrics or uses commercially made fabric.
Suzanne is a regular contributor to the UK magazine Popular Patchwork both writing articles about making bindings for quilts and designing and making quilt projects. Suzanne is a member of the Quilters’ Guild and several small embroidery and patchwork groups in Sussex.
