Sue has lived in the Lake District for 35 years, where she still enjoys walking her dogs, after a lifetime of mountaineering in Scotland and The Alps. On bad weather days, Sue is a patchworker and quilter, something she has done since she was 8.  Sue is also a Get Creative ambassador for The Quilter's Guild (QG). 
Sue have always been a volunteer - with the Duke of Edinbrugh's Award, with The WI and QG, checking Exmoor Ponies which are conservation grazing - amongst other things. Since retiring after 40 years in the NHS and (concurrently) teaching in FE, she has had the freedom to develop my interests in things creative and in the heritage sector. Sue now volunteers at a local museum and deliver craft sessions there and with the u3a. Together with the museum team, she is currently delving into the textile heritage of the local area and trying to bring all these strands together.
