Susan has been crafting with fabric, needle, and thread since she was a young child and holds a bachelor’s degree in textiles and clothing along with a master’s degree in design. She likes all types of sewing but her favorite is mixed media – mixing fabric, paper, fibers, ephemeral mementos, photographs, trinkets, charms, etc. Having worked in the industry for over 20 years as an educator, writer, and editor for BERNINA of America, Susan is now a freelance teacher, blogger, and designer. She is the owner of, where she blogs and teaches about all types of sewing, focusing on using your sewing machine and presser feet to improve your sewing and expand your creativity. Don’t forget to bring your “BIG Book of Feet” book or any of the BERNINA “BIG Book of…” for Susan to sign.
