Sue Kim lives in Manitoba, Canada, with her three lovely children and husband. You may find her latest designs on her website, ithinksew.com. She started sewing when she was ten years old and has always had a passion for crafts. She earned a master’s degree in ancient Asian literature. However, she kept sewing and designing as a hobby until luckily she was asked to be a sewing instructor at a Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts store. That expanded into requests to instruct in several quilt shops; the quilt shop owners also encouraged her to start her own pattern business.
Her first patterns were for small bags and clutches, and eventually she was asked to make a pattern book on bags and clutches! Now, most of the patterns Sue sells are downloadable PDF patterns rather than printed patterns. She has completed several books of patterns and has become an independent pattern designer who is now writing for several publishers and pattern companies.read more
