- Master Machine Quilting: Free-motion Stitching and Thread Sketching - DVD Review by Valerie Bockman
Susan Brubaker Knapp surely qualifies as a master teacher of machine quilting. The skill and calm with which she approaches the task at hand is enviable for those of us who freeze up at the thought of free motion quilting, somewhat like the aspiring artist being intimidated by a blank sheet of drawing paper. Her instruction includes gratuitous little tips, not only what to do to make the task easier and more successful, but also its corollary: what not to do so as to avoid certain problems. All this takes place as she deftly stitches beautifully executed (yet simple) quilting designs. The same is true when she demonstrates thread sketching, which she makes less "beginner-fearsome" through her instructive commentary.
