Sue Spargo Quilt Designer
Sue Spargo is a gifted quilt designer who lived a good part of her life in South Africa and England. Two very different environments and cultures inspired many of her designs, the stark contrasts between the arid beige and browns of the African bushveld and the lush greens of the rolling hills of Southern England have continued to be a rich source of ideas. Sue has embraced Tristan Italian Threads especially Genziana 12wt Wool, Seta 24wt Silk and Tre Stelle 60wt Cotton.
