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.
Daphne Greig began quilting in 1984 when she enrolled in a beginner class at the local shop. She jumped in with both feet to cover all the beds and many walls with quilts and now refers to her life before this time as "BQ" -- Before Quilting. Daphne has had several careers but her career as a quilt designer, teacher, and author is the most fun and rewarding. She is an enthusiastic and patient teacher, encouraging her students to try new techniques and expand their repertoire of skills.
