She runs classes and workshops from her charming garden studio at Wamberal, NSW having taught Visual Arts for 20 years. As a qualified Palmer/Pletsch teacher, Suzanne specialises in pattern fit and helping students create something unique, whilst she enjoys sharing her knowledge and love of sewing
At the 2011 Convention in Launceston, Suzanne’s workshops were very popular with her students. They were thrilled with the outcome of their creations. We should also point out that Suzanne’ garments in the “Recycle, Rethink, Remake” challenge won three awards – Day Wear, Special Occasion Wear and Voters’ Choice. The Special Occasion Wear was one of her fractured knits cardi, with an interesting story.
