Even as a little tyke, I was a tad off-center.....

One of my earliest crafting memories is being 4 years old & making doll clothes. I couldn't tie a knot in the thread, so I had to find Mum in the garden, kitchen, or wherever, to knot the end of the thread so I could keep sewing. She finally let me use the Singer Featherweight machine when I turned 6.

Thankfully, my six siblings & I were always surrounded by creativity. Mum is a superb quilter & excellent writer. Dad is a mechanical genius who was constantly working on some new creation. Sewing, dolls, jewelry & any number of other artistic pursuits popped up through the years.

So I come by quirkiness & far-reaching interests honestly.

 

My goal with Quirky SuZ designs is to have fun making wonderful things that will be enjoyed thoroughly by the person fortunate enough to have them.

 

Sometimes that will be me............
