She is the author of three book and i'm sure she is secretly working on a new one.
Her skills of embroidery is incredible and her classes are always fully booked and there is a waiting list.
Lea travels whenever she can , went sevaral times to Istanbul and the US.
She found it difficult to be a teenager:very early she was attraced by fashion, politics, filosophy and decorative arts.
She tells in her first book: i went with my father to one of his wholesalers and asked for a brown woolen fabric...........
" But that's not fancy for a young lady" the two guys said .She insisted and went home with her dark brown woolen.
A few days later the wholesaler called her dad saying she was a real trendsetter, all of a sudden browns
were much sought after, could she read in a crystal ball?
"My family insisted to marry me" she tells.
Finally she enters a graphic school and then meets her husband , the painterPierre Desson.
LE MONDE DE LEA is her first book, and also the one i prefer.
The next four antique quilts are from the QUILTMANIA collection
Sue Spargo was able to come to Nantes personnally: one of her book came out in french, with nice photos of her personal world.
I love the fabric choice: woolens, and the bright colors.
