Sue Hillis Designs

Sue Hillis Designs, Inc. evolved in 1976 from a simple request: a cross stitch pattern for a Williamsburg, Virginia landmark. Sue Hillis, a self-taught stitcher, wife, mother of three, and master "doodler/artiste", accomplished the task for a neighbor and friend. Within a month, her first book, Historic Virginia, was complete. Within a year, five more books had been added, as well as a studio, wholesale warehouse, and an office staff. Forty two years and over 1250+ designs later, the ideas and books continue to flow. Sue remains to be the sole designer and owner, often burning the midnight oil to meet deadlines. Trends and fads have come and gone, but Sue Hillis' designs succeed as some of the most charming, unique and quality designs and products in the needle work industry.
