Sue Marsh
Sue Marsh
Though you wouldn’t expect it from the fun, quirky illustrations she is known for, Sue Marsh possesses a background in software engineering. This highly technical background provided her with the ideal skill-set for quilt and pattern design. After 15 years working in the petroleum industry as a software engineer, she decided to make her passionate hobby a fulltime venture and launched Whistlepig Creek Productions, her pattern design company. Whistlepig Creek has found great success in its 10 year history, with an extensive website and mail-order business thriving. "I use math-especially trigonometry and geometry-more in quilting than in engineering!" Since she was a child, Sue Marsh has always been drawing characters. Her hand-drawn illustrations reflect a sense of youthfulness, whimsy and fun. Sue has a background in fabric design, having created two lines of fabric for Marcus Brothers over a period of two years. Sue’s fun, lighthearted collections of novelty prints appeal to both kids and the young-at-heart!

Susie Johnson
Susie Johnson
Susie Johnson’s eclectic taste and creative flair is displayed in the diverse subject matters and styles she illustrates, ranging from whimsical children’s novelties to sophisticated watercolor florals inspired from nature. Her professional career as an illustrator has landed her employment in many diverse fields, giving her the opportunity to let her creativity run wild and the ability to hone her skills in the world of graphic illustration.

"Creativity for me is like breathing — it’s just a necessary part of life, and though I’ve had many job descriptions through the years, running through them all has been the thread of creative visual communication. I came from an artistic background as my dad was an illustrator, first for the Detroit auto industry in the ’50’s and 60’s, and then as an illustrator of paperback book covers. He was passionate about the great artists through the ages and shared that enthusiasm with me, always defining the differences between things like form and balance, shape and shadow," shares Susie.



 
Sweetwater
Sweetwater
Sweetwater is a family ran design company located in northeastern Colorado. All of the designing, marketing, shipping, and distribution takes place at the corporate office just southwest of the town of Fort Morgan.

Farmyard Creations began as a quilt company in 1985, providing quilt patterns and designing fabrics for quilt stores throughout the Unites States, Canada and even overseas. In 2001, Sweetwater was born by taking the fabric designs of Farmyard Creations and turning them into paper. Coordinating stickers and other accessories were then added to give the Sweetwater line a soft, sophisticated style. Recently, Sweetwater has been focusing their energy on fresh and innovative graphic design, as well as a fun line of fabric and quilt patterns.

Tanya Whelan
Tanya Whelan
Designer Tanya Whelan was born nostalgic. For Tanya, creative inspiration comes from her passionate love of old houses, historic architecture, antique furniture, vintage objects and artifacts of all kinds, and most especially antique textiles (she’s a girl who can literally go weak in the knees at the discovery of the "perfect" rose strewn antique quilt). Her childhood in the grand old city of Manhattan, her travels to historic places around the world, and her time living in an ancient Italian town have all informed her vintage chic aesthetic and provided inspiration for her designs. Tanya has been sewing and crafting since childhood having learned the joys of creativity from the talented women quilters, artists, and crafters in her family, especially her mother. Her love of sewing and the birth of her 3rd child lead her to create a line of children’s hats and luxe baby blankets with a vintage sensibility that sold in boutiques on the east and west coasts. The process of sourcing the beautiful fabrics she used in her line eventually evolved into her retail fabric store Flapper Girl Fabrics. Her store has been featured in magazines such as Country Living, Romantic Homes, and Good Housekeeping as a fabulous source for vintage inspired fabrics. Tanya’s desire to see a little bit of the past come "back to life" for today’s quilting, crafting and interiors forms the basis for her design company Grand Revival and her new line, Barefoot Roses, for FreeSpirit. Sophisticated, pretty and fresh, with a modern approach to vintage style, Barefoot Roses reflects Tanya’s eclectic sensibilities. Tanya has a BA degree in philosophy and lives with her husband and 3 children in the historic city of Norfolk, Virginia. On any given Saturday she could be found in a musty corner of a local antiques shop rummaging through piles of textiles searching for the perfect sunny 40’s tablecloth, reupholstering a cool old chair found on the curb, or playing on the porch of her 1913 house with her children.

The Jungs - Lauren, Jessi and Carrie
The Jungs - Lauren, Jessi and Carrie
When you think of this “daughter-mother” team, think “young.” That is the pronunciation of their last name. Lauren is an artist—Jessi, a quilter. And recently, they combined talents with the other Jung sister/daughter, Carrie! Lauren graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Furman University, followed by a graduate degree in graphic design from the Portfolio Center in Atlanta. After bouncing around from various web design jobs, she has now, ventured out on her own, working on a startup with her significant other. They’ve created an ad-tech company where fashion brands can connect and collaborate with bloggers on their website, The Shelf. Jessi learned to quilt in 1999, from her friend, Connie. They went on to design and sell quilt patterns, as well as develop a quilt planner, labeled PLAN BEE. One day, Lauren said, “I have a great idea. Let’s design our own fabric line!” And that was the beginning. Carrie was in college at that time at Clemson University. She has a masters degree in Marketing. She is a freelance journalist and radio producer in Albuquerque, NM. One Spring market, she tagged along, and discovered that she was a “natural” in promoting their fabric! So Carrie is now part of Jung Designs. Lauren and Jessi create their fabric designs. Jessi develops and sews quilt patterns. And Carrie creates and sews bags, totes, and accessory patterns for their business. They have a long distance partnership, as Lauren lives in Las Vegas, Jessi is from Spartanburg, SC., and Carrie resides in Albuquerque. But they get together as much as possible to work on future lines for Moda. And their latest accomplishment includes a book, Sweet And Simple Sewing, through Martingale Publishers.

Yuko Hasegawa
Yuko Hasegawa
Designer Yuko Hasegawa knows the importance visual communication. As an editorial illustrator with the Los Angeles Times, it was her job to create pictures that were literally "worth a thousand words". She had to describe complex stories with just a single illustration. "You get one shot to visually communicate a concept to readers, and grab their attention," she explains. Her talents landed her illustration jobs with more newspapers, magazines, and toy companies. Yuko earned degrees from two prestigious art schools, California Institute of the Arts with a BFA in Character Animation, and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California with a BFA in Illustration. You can see the merging of the two disciplines in her expressive, dimensional character designs.
