Susan Brubaker Knapp


About Susan:

I started out as a traditional quilter, and still love hand quilting and needle-turn appliqué, but I also embrace art quilting and innovative machine techniques. I started making art quilts in 2005. My work is in private and public collections, including the International Quilt Museum (Lincoln, NE) and International Quilt Festival Collection (Houston, Texas).
I have won national as well as local awards, and have been exhibited at national and international venues. My work was exhibited at Quilt National in 2023. I have won seven Best of Show awards at three different quilting guilds, with six different quilts. My work has been featured in several national and international magazines, Quilting Arts Calendars and the 2012 Quilt Art Engagement Calendar. It has graced the covers of five issues of Quilting Arts magazine.
Previously, I created a graphic design and communications business, designing logos, corporate identity systems, newsletters, magazines, annual reports and brochures. I am an experienced writer, and have worked in corporate communications and also as a page designer for The Charlotte Observer (Charlotte, N.C.) and The Herald-Leader (Lexington, Ky.).
