Announcing Susan Brubaker Knapp

Nationally and internationally known quilt teacher and artist.  Host of “Quilting Arts TV,” and author of books and educational videos.
August 22 – 24, 2017 at Bits ‘n’ Pieces Quilt Guild
Program: The Artist in You August 22nd
7:00 PM Salem Methodist Church –  Ballwin, MO

In a one-hour digital slide show and trunk show she will describe her personal journey from that of a traditional quilter to an artist who makes both traditional quilts and art quilts. Susan starts with a digital slideshow, which shows her work and some of the techniques she uses. Then she does a trunk show and a question-and-answer session. The focus is on ways for traditional quilters to become more creative by embracing their own “inner artist.” It is her goal to inspire and encourage quilters to try making an art quilt for several reasons: to challenge themselves, to unleash their innate creativity, to learn new techniques, to discover things about themselves through art, and to share their view of the world with others.
