Justin Stafford

Justin Stafford has always been a creative soul. As a child, he loved building wood sculptures out of the left-over scraps from his dad's woodworking shop, taking pictures with disposable cameras, painting landscapes, making greeting cards and eventually finding his bliss in the fiber arts. He attended the Fashion Institute of Technology which landed him in New York City. This proved to be a huge source of inspiration for his work. After placing in a Bernina quilts for shelter dogs contest, people started reaching out to see if he gave lessons and so his little quilt business was born. He decided to name it Keaton Quilts after his dog at the time, Diane Keaton, who was the catalyst for him to start sewing again, making her little booties, snappy sweatshirts, and little quilts for her beds. Since then, Diane has passed on the torch to Buster Keaton - his new pup. After several years of teaching workshops in the city and abroad, having his quilts appear in Saks Fifth Avenue windows, and writing the book - Tiny World: Quilting, he's excited for his latest adventure - mastering everything to do with his new BERNINA Q20 on the studio frame.
