She gave up all thoughts of medicine for drawing, sewing and fashion design - a brave decision. Sue went on to study fashion and knitwear at Nottingham Trent, which has become a hotbed of amazing British hand knit designer talent over the years.
Sue has been a vital force in British knitting design for some of the biggest names in the business, but it was only in 2011 that Sue launched her own freelance handknit design business. Her philosophy is simple: "I want to marry traditional stitches with modern shapes so that the knits flatter and fit well, yet the instructions are easy to follow.” Sounds perfect to us.
And her most exciting knitty moment? “Seeing little Prince William on his way to nursery school photographed in one of my designs,” she says.
About working with Yarn Stories – It is wonderful to be working with such soft, high quality yarns, created in the most beautiful palette of colours. However it's even more exciting because they are made in God’s own county! (That’s what the locals call Yorkshire, for those of you from further afield) and I’m delighted to be able to work with and support local producers and thrilled that they chose to work with me. It’s a very symbiotic relationship.
