Krista Withers has been professionally Longarm quilting for the last ten years. With roots in very traditional quilting, Krista has worked toward merging her knowledge and love of this deeply saturated world of textiles with the growing modern movement. She graduated from the University of Washington with a BFA in Painting. The color, texture, surface movement and exploration that thrilled her in the visual arts made the transition from painting and drawing into quilting arts an obvious and appealing move. Drawing is at the core of her practice and is one of the fundamental elements of her teaching process. Krista's digitized patterns can be found here. She lives and works in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, two children and dog.
