Local designer Susan E. Brown presents a workroom with textiles and projects for her clients that even if difficult to handle due to the delicate nature of a given fabric or combination, are so gorgeous to work with that it's easy to get absorbed in color and pattern. Several hours later, the project is finished, delivered to residence, and the result of each new sewn or upholstered project added to her artistic mix is inspiring.
