Susan Slaton is a self-professed quiltaholic, who began her quilting addiction in 1990 with a Quilt in a Day double Irish chain class at the local high school. She only became a ‘serious quilter’ when she retired from nursing in 1997. Susan has shown quilts in shows across the nation. Her quilts and her machine quilting have won awards nationally.
For several years now, Susan has been repairing vintage quilts for customers, giving her a new appreciation for the quilters who have gone before us. She loves making tattered quilts usable and lovely for new generations.
Susan tries to have fun classes that not only teach the skill of quilting, but are also entertaining and exciting. Susan also give trunk shows of her quilts with three themes: My Quilting Journey, What was She Thinking, Wild Quilts That Sometimes Don’t Work, and New Quilts from Old Tops and Blocks. Susan can also give short talks on what makes a good show quilt or how to prepare your quilt for a longarm quilter for the best result.
