My name is Sandy Lueth. I live in Windsor, Colorado. My mother taught me how to sew at quite a young age, but I have to admit that I learned to make quilts from a very elite group. There are seven of us Lueth cousins and the “Lovin’ Quiltin’ Cousins” squad is truly the source of my quilting gene.
Years ago, I began sewing purses and totes in addition to continuing my quilting. After making many purses from retail patterns, I developed a tote pattern of my own that was published in 2008 and “Totes by Sandy” was born. My teaching experiences demonstrated clearly to me the importance of simple to follow illustrated patterns and instructions. Feedback I’ve received confirms I’ve achieved that goal.
I became fascinated with the beauty and visual complexity of Judy Niemeyer's quilts. It truly seemed a new art form to me. After my first exciting retreat in 2010, I continue to have at least one “Niemeyer” project underway. I love the art that blooms from the careful selection of fabrics and the exquisite precision that results from Judy’s piecing vision. I am honored and excited to serve as a certified instructor, sharing this fabulous techniqueI recently lost my Golden Retriever that I got as a puppy. She brought smiles to so many people throughout her lifetime. I trained her to be the most wonderful Therapy dog. It’s was her favorite thing to do.
I’m happily married to the love of my life. I have two great kids and two wonderful grandsons. With my new family I am happy to add 2 more daughters, two more grandsons and finally a granddaughter!
