Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details:
Instructor: Susan Manry, HQ National Educator
Instructor Bio: At age five, Susan Manry's mother taught her to thread a needle and make a running stitch. Before long, she had taken over the sewing machine. Growing up, Susan's interests included textiles, drawing, design, and a broad range of arts and crafts. While raising three busy children and running an insurance business with her husband, her hobbies expanded to include digital drawing, web authoring, and computer technology. Yearning for a career using her creative talents, Susan was smitten after discovering the combination of her creative joys in one activity, long arm quilting! Fabric, drawing, design, and sewing all in one complete package was simply too enticing to resist, and soon she was happily partnered with her HQ Fusion and Pro-Stitcher. Mastering Pro-Stitcher and Pro-Stitcher Designer and seeking innovative ways to use both, Susan now enjoys quilting professionally with the HQ Infinity. She has also added the HQ Sweet Sixteen to her studio, expanding her skills and talents to include sit-down quilting. Susan believes she was meant to quilt and she relishes any opportunity to share her love and knowledge of the craft with others. She lives in Central Texas with her husband, Mike, and their two pups.
