NEW book 'Colourful Canvas Landscapes'

At last my new book 'Colourful Canvas Landscapes is finished and avaible to buy for £11.95.

It has 48 pages packed full of information on how to get started, what you will need, how to free machine sew and eight projects to inspire you.

More books are in the pipeline as so many people have asked me to write books about my card designs as they would like to make thier own versions. You won't have to wait too long as the second book is nearly finished.

Radio Cambridgeshire with Sue Dougan

Welcome to my website.....a place where old cotton sheets come to life with plenty of dyes, paper, PVA glue and lots of black thread and free machine sewing.

You may have heard me talking on Radio Cambridgeshire today about free machine quilting. Would you like to give it a go? My classes are fun to do and you will go home with the front of a cushion cover almost finished. You will be so surprised at how creative you can be. It is not as difficult as you might think...all you do is scribble with the machine instead of a pen!!

Come and join me sometime soon

Happy New Year 2013

Happy New Year to you!

There are now eight new cards in the range with more to come so watch this space.....they wont be visible until they have been printed and are ready to go.....hopefully by mid-january they will be ready to hit the shelves! My quilt, 'Don't Forget to Drop the Dogs' is one of them. See below.

I'm a page 3 girl!

Dont forget to drop the dogs!

‘Don’t forget to drops the dogs’ is one of those ridiculous expressions used by free machine quilters and refers to the feed dogs which normally feed the fabric under the foot! I have wanted to create an image of it for a long time and the Cambridge Quilters Exhibition at The David Rayner Centre, Scotsdales, Cambridge from 5th to 7th October 2012 seemed a good enough reason to get it done.
