From SB editor Kathy Barnard:
Many of you may remember the elaborate heirloom designs that Sue Johnson contributed to Sew Beautiful magazine. Her family is holding an auction of her estate including several of her dresses and heirloom designs, yards of amazing laces and fine fabrics, as well as a collection of Sew Beautiful magazines. Her home, furnishings, and fine collectibles are also for sale. I was a guest in Sue’s home many times and I can tell you she had some of the most beautiful dishes and collectibles and antique pieces I have seen, so the auction will be a grand one and well worth the trip. All of the proceeds go toward her granddaughter Christie’s medical school expenses. Christie grew up modeling on the pages of SB and I am sure Sue Sue would love to know that her Earthly possessions could send Christie to grad school.
