Sandra Johnson

Sandra’s sewing story all started with her 7th grade home economics teacher. From the beginning Sandra was in love with fabric. After a rocky start and hours upon hours of sewing and quilting in her early teens, she became quite an accomplished seamstress.

Upon graduating from high school she had developed quite a reputation in her city and had several commissioned projects under her belt. She then attended Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona where she received her Bachelor of Science in Home Economics, Textiles, & Clothing.

Her love for fashion and fabric took her to Bullocks department store where she entered their Buyer program, but throughout all the time she spent working, she still wanted to create and teach. She began her teaching career as a quilting and sewing instructor, and over the next 30 years, she was an instructor for many local city programs and junior colleges.

In 2014 Sandra decided to teach full time and create art and clothing that would appeal to creative people all over the world. Her first modern quilt was shown at Quiltcon 2016 in Pasadena, California. She has had many of her art quilts in museums, and national quilt shows. She has had the opportunity to speak and teach at several quilt guilds and conferences.

Sandra has been featured in several publications, including Visioning Human Rights in the New Millennium (Quilting the World’s Conscience) by Carolyn L. Mazloomi, PHD, Quiltfolk (July 2019), Simply Moderne (summer 2018 and winter 2019), Altered Couture (2018 – 2019), Haute Handbags (2016-2019), and Apron-ology (2014).
