Suzann Thompson: Textile Artist, Author, and Speaker

Suzann Thompson

Continuing our long tradition of family needlework, I learned to knit and crochet from my mother, when I was a child. In junior high school, I crocheted and sold dozens of draw-string granny-square purses, getting my needlecrafting career off to a good start. Though I earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from The University of Texas at Austin, knitting and crochet became my life’s work. Teaching others to knit and crochet developed my skill. Designing needlework and craft projects for publication in magazines and books gave me even more insight into the crafts. By that time, I was pretty certain that a person could use knitting and crochet to make perfectly fine art. The result of such thinking was my signature TextileFusion technique, which combines knitting, crochet, quilting, and embellishment into art to hang on the wall. My latest on-going project has been Celebrate Doilies, a traveling exhibit of doily history and doily-inspired art. My studio is in rural Texas, surrounded by pastures and a tiny pecan orchard.



My mission is to bring people together through the wonder of needlecrafts and the human stories behind them. Knitting and crochet connect us to others around the globe; they tie us through time to people of the past. My goal is to increase those connections and make the ties stronger.
