Sue has been sewing since her first 4-H project at the age of 10. Her proficiency in this art resulted naturally from a lifetime of sewing for herself, her home, her four children, and now ten grandchildren. Her enthusiasm for sharing the lifeskill of sewing and quilting with others is her passion, and for more than 40 years her profession focused on sewing education.
Sue and her husband Herb travel together presenting "Sew and Quilt with Sue" programs across North America. Sue and Herb enjoy sharing the joy of sewing and quilting and meeting new friends.
Before retirement, Sue was Executive Vice President of Consumer Motivation for a major sewing machine company. She has 33 books to her credit including Sew Fast, Faster, Fastest, published by Rodale Press. She was Executive Producer of the America Sews with Sue Hausmann. America Quilts creatively and Sew Young, Sew Fun tv series for Public Television. Sue received the 2002 American Sewing Guild "Sewing Hall of Fame Award," the 2007 "Master CSE award from the Sewing Education Alliance" and was inducted into the Sewing Machine Hall of Fame in 2012. Sue attributes much of her success to the encouragement and support of her husband of 52 years, Herb, and is thrilled he joins her in the mission of sharing the joy of sewing and quilting!
