Suzanne was born in Fitzroy, the eldest of six children, and spent most of her younger years in the city then moved to Quambatook, in northern Victoria.

Following in the footsteps of her mother, Suzanne was originally a keen knitter. After a work accident left Suzanne with a disability, she started to crochet, which is less painful on her injured shoulder.

Crochet is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials using a crochet hook. The name is derived from the French term crochet, meaning ‘small hook’.

Completely self-taught, Suzanne likes to crochet for other people. As Suzanne says, “it’s a way for me to keep sane and keeps my mind busy”.

Today, Suzanne is a homebody, who has experienced severe depression for the last 15 years.

According to beyondblue, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. In any one year, around one million Australian adults have depression. Symptoms can range from minor (but still disabling) through to very severe.
