WHO AM I?
I am SuJeanne Foster, a retired engineer. I love to do embroidery and make all kinds of fabric art. My husband, Norm Chan, also a retired engineer, makes violins and furniture, paints on canvas, and designs on a CNC machine which he built himself. We enjoy pottery. Norm is the real artist.
You may be surprised to learn that most of my embroidery is done on the computer, using various software programs. Most patterns are purchased, but some are home-designed. It can be difficult. The fun part is the stitch-out where it all comes together (or not).
I create a great variety of items: tee-shirts, blankets, murals, coasters, purses, table decorations, patches, nametags, lace ornaments, quilt blocks, pillow cases, finger puppets, key chains, door tags, Christmas stockings, jackets, and key fobs.
I am inspired by the smiles I see when I make gifts for my friends and family. Every holiday is an excuse to make some cute little items. During the pandemic, I made fun facemasks.
I also do custom work, such as the work apron for my sweet man. Made according to his specifications, from denim scraps and an old apron; he wears this when he makes his violins.
