You can find Suzy, the talented lady behind li’l lampshades on Instagram, or come meet her at the Makers & Shakers on Saturday 1 April at the Marrickville Town Hall.


Suzy has been a maker, dabbler and general fabric fanatic since childhood, and a chance make at a community college evening class sparked a whole new obsession. Using an old skirt with a great pattern, she bound a frame, stitched on the panels – and was hooked! This traditional technique of sewing material to a frame takes a whole lot more time, but it’s a technique she enjoys. She love seeing a pretty piece of fabric, imagining it as a shade, and seeing it come to life.
