Eye for style
Susan & I met as work colleagues in the mid 90’s, becoming a good friend as we discovered our like mindedness in many ways, & especially in the art & craft of creating garments. We could always count on one another as someone who shared our enthusiasm for solving a construction challenge or appreciating timeless quality in textiles.
She is to be admired in her pursuit of a life’s dream, taking risks & pushing on through uncertainty, with dedication to quality craftsmanship we rarely see. She arrived, in her words, at ‘the top of her game’. I salute her!
Susan’s business reflected her style so well. Every one of her choices were thoughtful. She so valued the execution & history of each piece she found, bringing these elegant remnants into daily use. She served up unique, absolutely beautiful pieces for ‘you and your home’.
Our conversations indeed involved intense interest in ‘how are YOU’- each family member remembered, the news always an important, considered part of the exchange. She was deeply, kindly committed in the gift of self to her circle of treasured friends & family.
Susan was willing to sacrifice in some areas to live the BEST of this moment in time, be it food, art, space. She inspired me to live well.
I see her all around my home in my apron, tea towels, wee gifts, MANY garments, our bedspread
I am so grateful to have had her as a friend. I have, & will, be raising a glass in her name, while perhaps having some exquisite cheese.
