Sue Brazier

Thank you for agreeing to be interviewed, Sue.

As a member of Fibres and Fabrics, how do you define yourself, creatively? I am a frustrated craftsperson who would like to be more creative.
What do you enjoy doing most? I love embroidery and sewing.
Who would you say has inspired you more than anyone? An aunt who made beautiful things and taught me to embroider and crochet. Also my mother who taught me to sew.
Do you have a good workspace? I have a lovely big area with plenty of benches and cupboards and a bookshelf. Perfect! 
Which 3 tools could you not live without? My sewing machine, thimble and point turner.
Do you keep a sketchbook or journal? No, I’m not creative enough to draw but I often write down ideas.
How do you overcome those blanks we all come up against at some time? Browse through books and magazines.
If cost wasn’t an issue, what avenues would you choose to explore to expand your skills? Attend every possible workshop or forum.
How do you balance your life? Pretty unbalanced – lots of play, not much work!!
That sounds like a really good balance to me!
What does your work mean to you? Satisfaction, peace and solace. It is like a therapy.
