Monthly Meeting Featuring Susan Brubaker Knapp

July 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Artist In You

I describe my personal journey from that of a traditional quilter and pattern designer to an artist who makes both traditional quilts and art quilts. I start by discussing my work (both traditional and art quilts) and some of the techniques I use. The focus is on ways for traditional quilters to become more creative by embracing their own “inner artist.”

Creating fiber art is my consuming passion. I am an artist who works in fabric and thread. I find great joy in creating works that draw people closer and invite them to savor color, texture and form. The art I create is my way of celebrating and documenting the deep mysteries of the world that are to be experienced only by close inspection of the miraculous details of nature.

While my core materials — cloth and thread — are those used in traditional quilting, I often employ substances such as fabric paints and dyes, Tyvek, Angelina fibers, and water-soluble wax pastels, to transform the cloth. Nearly all of my work is realistic in style, and starts with original photographs of the subjects. I use two primary techniques – wholecloth painting, and fused applique – then heavily free-motion thread sketch the surface before quilting.
