Who is Sue Spargo?
Seeded in 2002, Sue Spargo Folk-art Quilts, Inc. began to sprout, grew and then flourished in the basement of Sue’s home. It was here where she embarked on her journey of dimensional layering and embroidery and introduced the world to wools saturated in bright colors, multi-medium layering and embroidery which resulted in textural depth and dimension never before seen. Her home is where she introduced to the world the thought of a Block of the Month program, once, when these were unheard of. Bursting out of the basement, in 2012, the business relocated to a 2000 sqft office space where it was quickly realized there was a need for something quite a bit larger. Designing and planning began, and in 2015, the business relocated to a 5000 sqft space which included a custom dye room, several offices, large shipping area and large warehouse. In, 2018 walls came down again, expanding the space to 12,000 sqft for lending additional warehouse space, offices, a state of the art classroom, a large creative area and retail shop. A trend of every 3 years has been noted… what will 2021 bring???
Sue is the driving force behind the Sue Spargo brand, though her intensely humble nature makes this tough to spot. She is an extreme lover of life, a survivor, a giver, a mother of four children, an author, an international teacher and designer. Sue’s passion is teaching, and her schedule clearly reflects that. She maintains an extensive teaching schedule while designing her Block of the Month program and other projects on the road.
