Sue Culligan studied graphics and photography at Brighton College of Art, in the South of England. Having been a passionate knitter since childhood, she decided to start her own business designing and selling children’s knitwear in a tiny shop in Brighton, so in 1981 Kangaroo was born. The business evolved over the years to become a yarn shop, then finally the Internet business that is today. Sue also writes the yarn review for knitting magazine and is the author of The Knitting Stitch and Motif Directory. She now spends much of her time in France where she runs a B&B and knitting retreat.
