I’m Susan and my husband Andrew and I live in Portland, Oregon with our kids Pearl + Everett. I’m a freelance writer and I love to make things!
I’m the author of nine craft books, and my new book, Sew + Quilt, is my favorite one yet. It's a collection of two dozen quilts, patchwork, and sewing projects, and embroidery designs that are all beginner-friendly, but there are also plenty of ideas for experienced quilters to try.
I teach online for guilds and maker spaces, and filmed a Log Cabin Quilting Series for creativebug you can take anytime! I also volunteer as a historian and one of the program coordinators for Portland Modern Quilt Guild, and as my daughter's Girl Scout Leader.
In my spare time, I love to sew clothes, make quilts, embroider, read, and drink coffee.
Here I am in a few other places…
Please drop me a line if you'd like to get in touch about classes, books, or PMQG!
