Quilting Adventures - Sue Benner Registration  

Scholarship application 2021

Registration opens June 15th, 2020 on the KHQS website.  Space is limited!  Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to meet Sue, spend time with your fellow quilters and learn a new technique in the process!

DESCRIPTION: Each participant will create one or two landscape quilts along with several small studies. The class will explore different approaches to representing landscape, including those of artists in a variety of media. Sue will then show students how to look at the landscape, analyze it, and translate it to fabric using several fused construction methods to help them each accomplish their goals.  For those that are taking this workshop for the second time, a more ambitious project can be pursued. 

Sue began making landscape images from raw edges, selvedges, and other odds and ends from scrap bags. From there she has gone on to add other techniques and develop a large series of work inspired by wetlands and prairies in her childhood home state of Wisconsin.

Previous students have told Sue that this workshop changed the way they saw the land. 

Where: Camp Loucon, 8044 Anneta Road, Leitchfield, KY  42754

Cost: $640.00 (includes room and board) with a non-refundable $50.00 deposit.  The supply list will be available for download on the KHQS website at the time of registration.  In the event QA 2021 is cancelled due to events beyond the control of KHQS (e.g., COVID19) your registration fee and deposit will be refunded.

While pursuing a degree in molecular biology and a master's in biomedical illustration, Sue Benner created her vision of the microscopic universe in painted and quilted textile constructions. Her early work propelled her to become a studio artist in 1980, working primarily in the medium that later became known as the Art Quilt.

An innovator in her field, Benner creates complex dyed and painted textiles combined with recycled fabrics to form collaged fields of pattern, color, and beauty. Her work is shown world-wide in galleries, US embassies and museums including the International Quilt Study Center and Museum, National Quilt Museum, Neville Public Museum and the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art.

Her quilts have been juried into Quilt National eight times, recently winning the Most Innovative Use of the Medium award.  She served as a juror in 2009.

A respected educator, she lectures and teaches workshops nationally and internationally in the areas of surface design, textile collage, fused quilt construction and artistic inspiration. She is well known for her communications skills and her ability to bring her knowledge of design and technique to the classroom experience. Visit Sue’s website at
