Sue Spargo





What an amazing artist!! Even though we were there at her workshop to learn applique and embellishing, I was blown away also by her designs. They are folk art with a splash of brut art. She does not like thing perfect. She like it to show the hand that made it. Her work is her journey....she does it for pleasure. To see her use of color and combination of materials is really awesome. I could have stayed there and stitched for days. Colleen, Barbara and I felt really lucky to be there.

I think I feel a Art Clinic challenge coming on....

Oh, I just love Sue Spargo's work. Am green, green, green with envy, Sid, that you were in her workshop and I wasn't. :) See you at Artfest! xo
