Sue Alexander was born and raised in Oregon. She began her sewing career at the age of 5 by helping her mother make western shirts for family and friends. Sue’s adult life was full raising five children on farms in Oregon.
Sue started A Stitch of Country in 1996. Her seamstress business started in a wood shed after her mother converted into a shop area. Since she did not have a store front, Sue sold her products through consignment with local retail stores. Her products included baby clothes, bed sets, western clothes and wedding gowns. In 2000, Sue became interested in quilting, focusing her energy on quilting more than seamstress work. Her interest started with baby quilts and soon progressed to larger and more intricate quilts.
Sue moved A Stitch of Country to Fernley Nevada in 2010, where she now resides. Her current shop has a large variety of fabric, patterns, and notions. Sue was introduced to the Judy Niemeyer paper piecing technique after seeing a pattern in a quilting magazine that she “just had to make!” She fell in love with the technical and intricate aspect of the Quiltworx’s pattern. After this introduction to paper piecing, which has now become her specialty, Sue began the process of becoming a Quiltworx certified shop, and reached her goal in 2016. Sue has a passion and eye for selecting colors. Sue is able to design quilts using Quiltser to assist and accommodate her customers’ visions. Since becoming a certified shop, she has furthered her interest by teaching paper piecing classes.
Once Sue started teaching paper piecing classes through A Stitch of Country she knew there was something else out there for her. Sue found she had a talent in teaching these methods and wanted to share her enthusiasm with others by becoming a certified Quiltworx instructor. Sue now has the distinction of being dual certified.
Sorry, there are no classes scheduled for Sue Alexander at this time.
