Suzanne was taught how to knit as a young girl but, despite her mother's efforts, did not enjoy it. She rediscovered the craft when her children were involved in many activities and learned that knitting was a great way to spend time while sitting at soccer fields and ice arenas. Knitting quickly became her passion. In 2012, Suzanne began teaching a variety of knitting classes for the Community Education program in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. She also started entering her original designs in the Dakota County and Minnesota State fairs. She has won many ribbons for her entries, including several grand champion awards. When she is not knitting, Suzanne enjoys spending time with her family and works as a special education paraprofessional at a local elementary school helping students with special needs.
