About the GourmetQuilter
My name is SusanClaire Mayfield and I live in a delightful old home in the country in New Zealand. I have been quilting for many years and have been designing quilting patterns for a long time now!
I love to design and write patterns for quilts and bags and other quilt related items and now have quite a large range.
As a quiltmaking tutor, I have a variety of styles and techniques to offer, please contact me for more information.
As a Quilting Tips & Techniques tutorials presenter, I have many video tutorials available on GourmetQuilter on YouTube.
I have recently been spending some time in the UK on board a wide-beam narrow boat! I was working from the boat as well as doing some travel in the UK and seeing some of my family. Now I am back home with my lovely large studio in NZ, room to stretch out again after the small space on a boat! Life is such an adventure!
