Welcome! For more than 30 years, Susan Ball Faeder has been actively following the path of quiltmaking in Japan, researching the history of Japanese indigenous textiles, and sharing this through many avenues: her Japan tours, vending and mail order of textiles, teaching, lecturing, and gallery exhibits—all under the umbrella of Quilters’ Express to Japan. Please join Susan in celebrating this new reincarnation of QETJ, where she shifts the direction and focus to pursuing her own path as a fiber artist. View all projects.

Susan Ball Faeder's love for Japanese art and culture spans nearly 50 years.

  • Because of her familiarity with the people and culture of Japan, Susan will lead you to experiences and opportunities that would be impossible to find on your own.
