Instructor: Susan Manry
Instructor Bio: Sewing and drawing have been part of my life since pre-school, so when I stumbled upon a longarm quilting machine, it was love at first sight! Hoping for a career that would put my creative talents to use, I retired from the insurance business and began quilting for others. I now travel domestically and abroad and teach longarm quilting both privately and for Handi Quilter, Inc. as a field educator. There?s nothing I enjoy more than sharing my knowledge and love of quilting with others, or to hear a student remark, ?I can?t wait to get home and do this myself!?. My classes are filled with information, yet easy to understand, and I do my best to teach to all different learning styles. When I?m not enjoying the wonderful community of quilters, I spend my time at home in Central Texas with my husband, grown children, and two pups.
