Sue has been quilting for nearly 30 years and has taught machine quilting and appliqué techniques for almost as long. She has taught and lectured for the American Quilter’s Society (AQS), at National Quilting Association and International Quilt Association shows, at guilds and conferences, and internationally. Her quilts have appeared in numerous publications. Sue is the coauthor of two books with her sister, Pat Holly, and they also sew award-winning quilts together—THE BEATLES QUILT claimed the 1998 AQS Best of Show award. Sue’s priority in the workshops she teaches is to provide a relaxed environment for students to learn machine techniques that are timesaving. She emphasizes the best quality workmanship, never compromising quality for speed!

Kay is known for her enthusiastic teaching methods and for incorporating exotic fabrics into her quilts in unique ways. She is a self-described “shopaholic” and loves to collect fabrics from around the world for the ultimate stash. Kay thrives on being able to teach others the joys of designing one-of-a-kind quilts with one fabric. Through the years, she has taken classes with international instructors and has taught as far away as Rabat, Morocco. Her quilts have been juried into a number of prestigious international quilt shows, exhibited at the Michigan Women’s Historical Center, and featured on a "Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine" cover. Kay is a member of the Capitol City Quilt Guild, the Lansing Area Patchers, the Shiawassee Quilters, the Saginaw Piecemakers, and the Pedal Pushers; a group that meets once a month to bike to nearby quilt shops. She and her husband, Rollie, live in Laingsburg, Michigan.
