Susan Manry
Instructor Bio:
At age five, Susan Manry?s mother taught her to thread a needle and make a
running stitch. Before long, she had taken over the sewing machine. Growing
up, Susan?s interests included textiles, drawing, design, and a broad range of
arts and crafts. While raising three busy children and running an insurance
business with her husband, her hobbies expanded to include digital drawing,
web authoring, and computer technology.
Yearning for a career using her creative talents, Susan was smitten after
discovering the combination of her creative joys in one activity, long arm
quilting! Fabric, drawing, design, and sewing all in one complete package was
simply too enticing to resist, and soon she was happily partnered with her
HQ Fusion? and Pro-Stitcher?. Mastering Pro-Stitcher and Art and Stitch, and
seeking innovative ways to use both, Susan now enjoys quilting professionally
with the HQ Infinity?. She has also added the HQ Sweet Sixteen? to her studio,
expanding her skills and talents to include sit-down quilting.
Susan believes she was meant to quilt and she relishes any opportunity
to share her love and knowledge of the craft with others. She lives in
Central Texas with her husband, Mike, and their two pups.
