Meet Susan Brubaker Knapp

"What started as hobby, has turned into a passion and business"
If you've ever thumbed through an issue of Quilting Arts Magazine, I'm sure you've run across an article or two by our very own SAQA VA/NC member Susan Brubaker Knapp.  She wrote a series of articles on thread sketching for Quilting Arts magazine. The six articles appeared throughout 2010, and her piece "Vanity" appeared on the cover of the April/May 2010 issue. 

"Candy Corn" is the October art for the 2011 Quilting Arts Calendar.
Her second Quilting Arts Workshop DVD, "Master Machine Stitching: Thread Sketching Beyond the Basics," was released in the fall of 2010.  Susan also appears in episodes #703, 707 and 712 of Quilting Arts TV, which will air early this year on some Public TV stations.

  "Magical Mistletoe" project was featured in the 2010 issue of Quilting Arts Gifts magazine. 
Susan's work is featured on the box of C&T Publishing's "The Art of Quilts Postcard Collection: Nature." The box contains 30 different art quilt postcards, and retails for $9.95. 

"Lepidoptera" appears in the December 2010/January 2011 issue of Quilters Newsletter magazine. 

"Lepidoptera" and "Coleus" are touring with SAQA's "Art Meets Science" exhibition. 

She has been invited to teach at New Zealand's Taupo Symposium 2013, and to appear on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims this spring. 


Susan is now a designated "Aurifil Expert," and is Aurifil thread's Designer of the Month for January 2011. Susan's "Leaves of Green" quilt is being offered through Aurifil's blog as a free pattern download.
