    Susan Drage


    Sue Drage was born and bred in Rugby, Warwickshire and started crafting in 2012 after a health scare. Crafting then became a great help to her in coping with this.

    Sue is now passionate about recycling and upcycling and creates things from many of the items most of us just throw away. She knits with supermarket carrier bags and makes ingenious creations from old cd’s, food tins, ring pulls from cans, magazines etc. These she transforms into handbags, shopping bags, earrings, purses and necklaces – all with huge visual appeal as well as practical uses.

    Supported by her husband Richard, Sue gives a fascinating talk entitled ‘Recycling with a Difference’ to a wide variety of groups, such as W.I’s, Town Women’s Guilds, Church Fellowships and U3A’s and is happy travel to many parts of the country, if requested, to give her talk. She also displays a large number of the items she has made and has had very positive feedback from her talks.
