Susan W. Smith

Susan has taught a variety of classes on quilting related software in private classes, conferences, and quilt shows.  As she wanted to digitize quilting patterns for her classes, she became interested in digitizing and is an Art and Stitch certified teacher. She is also a online Sulky certified teacher.  Her favorite student is her son, David, who works as a software engineer at Nordstrom and is also an Art and Stitch certified teacher.

Susan’s background in the areas of quilting, education, training, technology, management and organization development results from over 30 years working in various occupations as an United States Naval officer, credentialed library media teacher, mentor teacher, California state technology mentor, reference librarian, longarm quilter, and independent quilt teacher. She loves learning new things and sharing them with others!

Susan feels fortunate that she lives with her family, two wonderful labs and a variety of chickens on the beautiful Bainbridge Island near Seattle, Washington. Please feel free to contact us using the form below or at
