Sue Roddis was raised by a craft-loving mother, and grew up surrounded by fabrics and wools. She took up cross stitching, then enrolled on a creative embroidery course for a City & Guilds qualification. While studying embroidery, she discovered rubber stamping. She says it was as though 'another world opened up!' She soon began teaching workshops, before moving on to writing magazine articles. She has contributed to many craft magazine titles, in both the US and the UK.
