About John MacPhail, Art East Quilting Company
John was born in Windsor, Ontario and has been a crafter and maker for as long as he can remember. The maker influence was strong in his family and he would be encouraged to create at every opportunity. While so many mediums inspired his creativity, it was his love of theatre and costume that eventually led to his peaked interest in sewing and textiles.
John received his BA with Honours from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was here that he discovered his love for historical costuming, modern pattern drafting and unconventional sewing techniques.
John discovered his passion for everything quilts almost by accident, while searching for a sewing project to occupy his down time. This quickly became his career focus, and started Art East Quilting Co. under which he publishes modern quilt patterns and offers custom quilts, fabric goods and art pieces. He loves using quilting in various art forms, and has become known for his textile animal portraits. John enjoys spreading his love of quilting worldwide through his various virtual workshops which range from traditional quilting techniques, modern unconventional thread application and quirky raw-edge appliqué
