Susan-Claire Mayfield of Gourmet Quilter

SusanClaire Mayfield has been quilting since the seventies and was sewing as a child encouraged by her Mum before then.


When asked to teach at a local quilting store SusanClaire decided to prepare her own patterns for the class. The designs and patterns were popular and quilters asked for more – and so the pattern designing began. SusanClaire has many designs now and her own studio in her home in the New Zealand countryside, and loves it!


In recent years SusanClaire mentioned to a Quilter that she had been asked to be guest speaker at a Quilters Guild and was wondering what topic to speak on. The Quilter’s husband overheard the question and replied “Cooking of course”. When you get to know SusanClaire you won’t be surprised to hear that she took up the challenge and prepared a Quilters version of a 3 course fabric meal with appropriate commentary and good humour – and so the GourmetQuilter was born.


SusanClaire has developed the GourmetQuilter theme since then and has exhibited in NZ, UK and now USA. She has presented and tutored and still finds time to design and make quilts. Her Quilting Studio is open to visitors by appointment and you are made to feel most welcome.

SusanClaire now has a large range of her original designs, which are beautiful and varied. Each pattern has been personally crafted and many of her original designs capture a touch of tradition combined with great themes, and some are simply works of art. SusanClaire’s quilts have featured in USA Roadshows, UK exhibitions and European, Australian and New Zealand magazines.


GourmetQuilter says........”quilting is delicious!” - “I am devoted to the refined enjoyment of quilting, patchwork, appliqué and pattern design.”


SusanClaire has a YouTubeChannel, GourmetQuilter, where you can find a feast of Quilting Tips & Technique videos.
