Instructor Bio:

Sue Beevers is an author, fabric designer, fabric painter, and quilter. She’s been a guest artist twice on HGTV's Simply Quilts, and she designs fabrics for Northcott. But here's what you may not know about her... 

She is an artist and painter, but she started out as a spinner, weaver, and dyer, and her fiber work exists in collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. Sue has also travelled extensively giving lectures and workshops at most of the major weaving and spinning fiber conferences. She still has a weaving studio. 

Sue is also a cellist. She has a private cello studio, and she teaches cello at Hamilton College. So, she lives in two different worlds: music and art.

Sue lives in rural central New York State, and much of her work is about the inextricable link between people and the natural world and the sheer joy of existing in such a fascinating environment.
