Sue Spargo was born in Zambia. She received her education and trained
to be a nurse in the nearby country of South Africa. Shortly after,
she moved to England; it was this shift between two very different
environments and cultures that inspired many of her designs. Obviously,
Southern Africa has had a considerable influence on Sue Spargo's
life and creativity.
The stark contrasts between the arid beige and browns of the African
bushveld and the lush greens of the rolling hills of Southern England
have continued to be a rich source of ideas. Sue is influenced especially
by the energy and color of traditional African designs. All these
early experiences combined to stir her love of “primitive” arts
and crafts and grew into her focus on folk-art.
Throughout Sue's life, the United States beckoned and in 1989 that
dream was fulfilled, she Sue moved to Connecticut and subsequently
to Tennessee, Utah and Ohio. Each new State presented sharp contrasts
and stirred new ideas. With each move she met many new and wonderful
quilt enthusiasts and through them added abundantly to my knowledge
