Sue Dukes – Spring Quilt Retreat Coordinator Host
Molly Fae Nash – Spring Quilt Retreat Co-Coordinator Host
 

Since retiring after 28 years as an Air Force nurse, Sue Dukes is embracing the role of Pastor’s Wife. She shares her passion for quilting with her mother and daughter and is often found quilting with or for her quilting friends and family in Minnesota, Ohio, and the Bahamas. Sue grew up 7 miles from Lake Beauty Bible Camp but now calls Fairborn, Ohio home. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics from the University of Minnesota before transitioning into nursing. She is a certified APQS Longarm Quilter and claims her sewing studio to be her “happy place.” She has been attending LBBC Quilt Retreats for over 10 years and always looks forward to catching up with family and friends and meeting new people while quilting. Molly is a passionate creative. When she isn’t working at an international educational nonprofit, she can be found preforming in community theatre shows, traveling, and quilting. Molly Fae grew up all over the United States as the proud daughter of Air Force veterans. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Liberty University where she studied Visual Communication Arts and spent 5 years as a missionary after graduating college. During her time with the mission organization, she met her now husband, Tyler. Together they travel the world, recently having spent the second half of 2023 experiencing South America.  The first quilt Molly Fae ever made was at 9 years old for a Girl Scout project, guided lovingly by her grandmother and donated to a veteran’s hospital. Molly Fae loves incorporating her arts background into her quilt designs and finds the most joy quilting when she is able to do it alongside her mom.
