For me art is the act of expressing my feelings from deep within. I use various medium to create unique one-of-a-kind works of art using fibre, textiles and many types of embellishments. Each piece is considered a personal creation inspired by the elements of nature.
I offer classes to teach the various methods of quilting, fibre manipulation, knitting, crochet and the joy of embellishment to create beautiful fibre art.
Stitchtogether is a fibre art studio offering many facets of sewing, quilting, knitting, crochet and unique button designs created by me, Susan Curtis and assisted by my daughter, Jaclyn.
I have been teaching others the art of sewing since the mid 80's and continue to do so. My mother taught me how to sew on a little black Singer Featherweight. That was the beginning of a lifelong journey of fibre and fibre art.
