What's new at Dragon Threads

Introducing our newest scarf designer--
Susan K. Cleveland

I’ve known Susan for years on the quilting circuit. She always has a big smile and a positive attitude. Maybe that’s why her work looks so happy and colorful. Through the years I’ve gotten to know her a little bit better as we are both Bernina Ambassadors and see each other at the reunions.

Her work is so amazing and when I saw this new quilt, Flowered & Feathered Frenzy , I thought it would make a wonderful scarf!

Susan’s enthusiasm for quilting is said to be contagious! In classes, she works toward keeping an upbeat setting, providing well-written instructions, and attending to each student with personalized coaching. Her uniquely-styled colorful quilts have received many awards in international competitions where judges comment on impeccable workmanship and charming, unexpected elements such as specialty threads, prairie points, piping, and great binding techniques. She invented the Groovin’ Piping Trimming Tool which is used to trim piping seam allowances and the Prairie Pointer pressing tool.

Here are some examples of her work:

  • 6 ribbons at International Quilt Festival Houston between 1999 and 2010
  • Author and self-publisher of 3 quilting books
  • Inventor of 4 tools for quilters, one U.S. patent
  • International quilting teacher with 25 bookings per year since 2007
  • Articles in several quilting magazines.
  • TV: two episodes of Simply Quilts
  • Two episodes of TheQuiltShow.com, Two Craftsy classes, other internet shows
