The queen

Sue Nickels is the queen of stippling and feathers. Her quilts are gape-mouth knockouts with lots beautifully detailed quilting. She deserves every single award. 

I just finished her two-day EBHQ workshop on machine quilting. She was a fabulous instructor - organized, clear, concise and very patient and upbeat with everyone. Though she claims to be a non-techie, she used a microphone, camera and projector. Hurrah for Sue for embracing technology and enabling her students to see and hear her demonstrations

Despite having no interest in traditional quilting, I learned much even though my free motion quilting did not show any marked improvement.  Practice, patience and preserverence was her pep talk cry. No one becomes an award winning free motion quilter overnight. See - there's hope!
