About Fabric Scout Studio

Each morning, after walking the fields with border collie Georgie and drinking a cup of coffee, Sue Vanderveen can be found in her studio barn with her sewing machine humming away. On her work table are an assortment of textiles and trims that match the plaid of her carpet and the many tins of vintage buttons lining her walls.  

Sue studied interior and textile design at Kendall College of Art and Design, and has over 20 years of interior design experience, paired with a lifetime of sewing expertise. More recently she has decided to focus her time towards what she really loves: taking vintage fabrics and seeing what she can create with them. The result is Fabric Scout Studio.
