Susan Pinner


When did you start crafting and why?

Probably over 55 years ago, at junior school and I was making a costume doll and dressing it. The costume was in red and gold and the hair grew on the doll, LOL. I can picture it now sitting with my Grandma, she helped me make it on an old hand singer sewing machine my Mum had...ah, memories!

When starting new projects or coming up with new ideas, what inspires you?

Hard to say, never one thing, could be a painting, a flower, a gorgeous yarn or a colour combination, never just one thing or ever the same, one reason I love designing!
