Susan Purney Mark

Susan Purney Mark took her first quilting class over 20 years ago, and since then, quilting has been a very important part of her life. Susan's studies have included intensive design courses in England and Canada, as well as quilting techniques, history, fiber and dyeing workshops. She began teaching in 1993 and has enjoyed sharing her expertise and enthusiasm with students across Canada. Susan formed Patchworks Studio, a quilt pattern company, with her partner Daphne Greig, another Quilt U faculty member. offers a variety of original designs, quilting software and features a "series of the month." Susan coauthored "Quilted Havens: City Houses, Country Homes." Her patterns and articles have appeared in "American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine," "American Quilter Magazine," "McCall's Quick Quilts Magazine," and "Canadian Quilter." Susan encourages quilters to enjoy the process, to gather as much knowledge as possible, and to challenge themselves with new techniques and processes. Published works include: "Quilted Havens: City Houses, Country Homes."
