Do You Know Sue Patten? + Giveaway Winner Announced!

Sue Patten! She is not your typical quilter!  

Anyone who knows Sue knows her high energy, industry leading innovations and would tell you to expect the unexpected! Always with a story to tell or a tip to give her classes are non-stop educational and fun. Sue is an award winning longarm quilter, educator, author, designer, teacher and ambassador of the industry who has traveled world wide to teach her unique contrasting style. 

Sue is available for hilarious trunk shows. Sues journeys have taken her world wide. She has been putting this trunk show on throughout Canada and the United States. Never dull, always energetic and definitely hilarious. Sue never disappoints and will keep you in stitches. The show includes her personal quilts with a story for each one. You will get the opportunity to get up close and personal to the quilts with plenty of time for photos and questions.  

Sue also offers personal hands on classes, lecture demos or drawing classes for our hosts. This is an opportunity to have one of the best in the industry come to your location and teach. This one on one atmosphere is the best way to learn. It is the only way that Sue is able to get close to the students and give the personal guidance they deserve. This is done in a light hearted, laid back environment. Students get that one on one treatment that they can't get during a lecture demo at the large shows. Getting to know Sue at this level is an experience, one they will not soon forget. Sue not only teaches content but also confidence. Tips and tricks you can only learn through experience are shared openly and she will answer all questions or problems you may be having.

Hop over to Sue's website: and check out her teaching schedule! If she is coming close to you or within comfortable traveling distance from you, then you don't want to miss her!  It will be the most rewarding experience you have ever had! 

She is also getting ready to go live with her brand new website:  Keep watch for the grand unveiling!
