- ABOUT CHRISTA
Christa Watson is a warm and enthusiastic quilter from Las Vegas, Nevada who loves teaching others to find joy through sewing.
Christa stumbled upon quilting as a newly married college student in the mid 90s and it was love at first stitch! After earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, she quickly realized she would be much happier creating her own business rather than working for someone else. She then spent the next dozen years exploring various ways to pursue a career in the quilting industry, all while raising a family. In 2008 her husband quit his job to join her in the biz full-time, and they've never looked back!
Over the years, Christa has won numerous awards for her quilts, and she's travelled the world teaching others her "perfectly imperfect" machine quilting techniques. She's an author of numerous machine quilting books, along with dozens of inspiring and original quilt patterns that focus on easy piecing with a graphic punch. She's also filmed 3 Craftsy classes including the popular "Startup Library – Quilting" workshop: a step-by-step guide for beginners showing how to make an entire quilt from start to finish.
Christa enjoys representing many of her favorite quilting industry companies as a brand ambassador for BERNINA sewing machines, Electric Quilt design software, and Hobbs batting. You can also find her favorite threads for piecing and quilting in 3 exclusive thread kits from Aurifil. She currently designs bold, colorful fabrics for Benartex with 7 collections so far, and more on the way. She's always on the lookout for inspiration for her next collection!
As for personal quilting style, Christa prefers the graphic, geometric look of modern quilts, but she considers herself a cheerleader for all quilters everywhere. She believes it's important for everyone to discover the techniques they personally enjoy, and she's never met a quilt (or quilter) she didn't love.
Christa is excited to spread the joy of quilting to as many people as possible in any way she can. Find her beautiful photos, helpful tips, and plenty of quilting tutorials online at christaquilts.com. For daily doses of inspiration, follow her on social media @christaquilts.
