Sue shares her life as a creative person with us:
I live on a farm at Mokoia with my husband Bruce where I breed Simmental cattle. I have always liked to make things starting with soft toys, dolls and teddybears and this has led into a passion for hand embroidery. I have been a member of the Embroidery Guild based in Hawera for many years. I also like to collect antique lace, fabric, ribbon etc and and tools related to embroidery / sewing. My other interest is paper craft. I enjoy making paper related items and learning to use different techniques and products.As embroidery takes up most of my time at present paper activities are not getting a great amount of attention.I hope to improve this in the future.
Sue created two works for the ‘Made Over- Preserving & Reinterpreting Exhibition’ on at ‘from out of the blue studio gallery’ until May 10th 2021.
OUR DAILY BREAD
This work is being sold by Silent Auction. All proceeds will go to The Women’s Refuge. If you would like to place a bid or need more information please contact the gallery and they will be happy to help you.
Sue has taken a vintage flour sack, embellished it with the image of a loaf of bread and the statement “Our Daily Bread”. The additions are sensitive to the original textile and enhance this into an authentic memory vessel. A nostalgic collectible. Perfect to sit alongside any decorative vintage items reminding us of our domestic heritage. Beautiful stitching on an iconic flour sack. New Zealand’s heritage honoured.
PICK A POSIE
Taking a collectable hanky stitched with Violets, Sue has imagined strolling through the garden and gradually filling a basket with the delicate, symbolic flowers.
