Susan Dorchester

Susan Dorchester's love of fabric began at a very young age when she started sewing for her dolls.  Her mother taught her to sew and design her own clothes and her great-grandmother taught her to embroider.  In college, she studied art, textiles, and interior design.

Susan started teaching garment sewing in 1979 when knits became so popular.  Through the years, she has continued to teach classes in doll making, quilts, handbags, and garments.  She has also done freelance designing of home décor items, dolls, and stuffed animals for manufacturers.  She takes individual requests and also designs and sells her own line of patterns.

When I am not designing, sewing, or teaching, you can find me out in my garden getting inspired for a new project.
