Bill and Sue Cotton are the soapmakers behind Southwestern Soapworks. Bill and Sue moved to the Angel Fire/Eagle Nest area in 2005 from Scottsdale, Arizona. Having visited the area for many years, they enjoyed the high altitude and decided that they had to move here permanently.
Bill and Sue are both stained glass artists but became interested in making soap after moving here.
With the decision to purchase Southwestern Soapworks, Bill and Sue made the transition from stained glass to soapmaking.
