Susan Briscoe studied Visual Art and Drama at the University College of Wales before moving to Japan to teach English. Here she became fascinated by Japanese fabrics and their patchwork and quilting techniques. She has succeeded in combining her design and needlework skills with a need for practical accessories in her job as a footpath officer. Susan now writes and designs for needlecraft magazines and teaches bag making and sashiko quilting. She has exhibited at UK national quilting shows as well as in Japan. Susan Briscoe lives in Wrexham, North Wales.
