Susan Wilson received the HGA Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving, Master Level, in 1990, with a specialty in crackle weave. Her book Weave Classic Crackle & More was published in 2011. Susan's work has been published in Weaver's, Handwoven, Complex Weavers Journal, and Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot magazines, and her crackle sample was featured on the cover of A Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns edited by Carol Strickler. She has lectured and taught workshops throughout the U.S. and at several Convergences and regional conferences. A weaver for 50 years, Susan enjoys pattern weaving, sampling to explore woven structure, and creating household textiles and clothing accessories.
Notes from Susan: As I approach 70, I have been thinking about retiring from teaching, but it is hard to let go of something I so enjoy. And then in 2017, I developed a new workshop on Polychrome Crackle! What was I thinking? So, in an effort to cut back, I have eliminated most of my older programs and workshops and am now offering just my two crackle workshops. Right now 2019 is booked about as full as I want. As for 2020, who knows?
My book Weave Classic Crackle & More remains popular as more weavers discover or re-discover crackle. You can check it out and order at the publisher's website www.schifferbooks.com. Do consider supporting your local yarn shop, bookstore, or your favorite mail order weaving supplier as well.
