Sue Miller is the driving force behind the online store and blog – Fabric Garden Australia. Born in Zimbabwe, she grew up in South Africa and has travelled extensively living in England, Mali (West Africa) and now Australia.
Her mother instilled a love of all things craft in her. She grew up learning how to sew (primarily dress making), knit, crochet and embroider.
Sue started her first quilt top when she was at university in South Africa. This quilt top sat in a cupboard for many years. Little did I know that I had what every quilter has – a UFO – Unfinished Object. Her mother finally couldn’t bear it any longer and stepped in ten years later and finished it off!
Many years later, Sue moved to Sydney, Australia. A friend of a friend, knowing Sue’s interest in patchwork talked her into joining a patchwork group and Sue’s love of quilting was reignited.
Working in IT full time, Sue wondered if it was possible to combine her passion for all things IT and quilting. It was then that the idea of an online store specialising in modern quilting fabric was born. Sue’s blog talks about her quilting experiences, as well as her travels and family back home in South Africa.
