Susan Leschke

Susan Leschke grew up in Minnesota and Wisconsin and worked as an elementary teacher but she always had some sort of sewing or needlework project going. A move to Virginia, a place filled with the influence of history and colonial craft, had an influence on her and lead her to weaving and spinning. She took a leap from teaching to learning and returned to school and studied textiles at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Finding weaving too structured she left it behind and worked primarily in embroidery. Her work has been exhibited in juried shows regionally and nationally including Through The Needles Eye, a two year traveling show sponsored by Embroidery Guild of America (EGA). She has also taught classes and workshops focusing on embroidery.
