John grew up in a family of crafters and makers. As a youth he could be found in the basement with his father doing woodworking or doing ceramics with his mother. His formal training is that of a church musician and he has lived and worked in Rochester, NY; Richmond, VA; N. Andover, MA; New York City, and finally returning to Rochester, NY.
He always enjoyed handwork (embroidery and cross-stitch) but quilting was on his crafting "bucket list" - once he started he was hooked! In 2010 he decided on a whim to enter the McCall's Quilting Design Star Challenge and was happy to be one of original 174 finalists and made it to the final round of competition with 7 other finalists. He soon began designing patterns for various fabric companies and quilting magazines. In 2011 he was chosen by HandiQuilter to be part of their My Story advertising campaign. He was chosen by BERNINA to be one of the testers in the development of the BERNINA Q24 and Q20 longarm machines. In 2013 his pattern Pinwheels appeared in the book Classic Modern Quilts published by Kansas City Star and he was chosen to be an Aurifil Designer for 2015. C&T Publishing released his book A New Spin on Drunkard’s Path” in August of 2016.
John is a BERNINA Brand Ambassador. He maintains a longarm quilting and quilting design studio - Big Rig Quilting, LLC in Rochester, NY. He specializes in ruler work on both domestic and longarm machines and travels extensively sharing his techniques and love of quilting.
