SusieCues started in 2008, just after my son was born. I never intended to ever sew for people, I only planned on creating unique pieces for Jakob, that I couldn't find in stores. I didn't know anything about running a business, about purchasing fabrics wholesale, or anything about online retailing. Nada.

The first piece I made, was an awesome rocket duvet cover for my son's traditional European pram. I received so many compliments on the set (mattress pad cover, pillow, blanket and duvet) while we were out around town, and many requests to make custom items that I decided to give it a go.

I made my first sale in October of 2009, and 150 sales later, SusieCues is going strong and growing. We deliver locally, and have shipped as far away as Norway, Singapore and Australia.

Our family is expanding (newest addition due June 2011), and our business is expanding too. SusieCues is now comprised of a team of professional seamstresses, all local to the Vancouver area, with a lot of sewing experience. We make our own patterns, and are constantly looking for new ways of doing things! I am still the primary custom designer, and will continue to do the designs, as I LOVE coming up with unique bedding combinations.

We're looking to improve our turn around time from 6-8 weeks, to under a month, and are going to have many Ready-to-Ship options in store. We're exploring the option of approaching local retailers, and are open to wholesale requests.

Hope you find something you love!
