Newspaper Valentine, by Suzann Thompson Newspaper Valentine, © 2006 by Suzann Thompson. I recycled four different sweaters into this 24 x 24" quilt. I crocheted the red trim, and sewed, oh, around 250 buttons onto it. Now, why is this wall hanging called Newspaper Valentine?
How can anyone resist all the gorgeous yarn, fabric, buttons, and beads in this world? I can't. I love to knit, crochet, sew, and I feel compelled to sew buttons on almost everything! TextileFusion was born because I couldn't choose just one craft and leave the others behind.

At first TextileFusion was only about my wall hangings, which incorporate knitting, crochet, quilting, and embellishment. Since writing and teaching about textile crafts and art are a big part of what I do, TextileFusion grew to include them, too.

Thanks for visiting! After you have a look around, please go to my blogs (links below), where you can read about my current projects and more.


These are my books, available in fabulous bookstores and online! Sometimes my designs appear in magazines, too. I hope you'll look for them, or check my book blog,
Curious and Crafty Readers, for the latest articles.
