Instructor Spotlight: Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Company

Joanna Figueroa often says that she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t creating some kind of art or working with her hands. It was a serendipitous occasion that found her working with textiles as a medium and she describes it as a “coming home” type of experience.

She has been a licensed designer for MODA fabrics for 12 years and is beloved for her numerous fabric collections in her signature Fresh Vintage™ style. Currently working on her 31st fabric collection, her collections focus on quilting cottons but includes other substrates.

Joanna also co-owns and operates Fig Tree & Company along with her husband Eric, who is her right hand man in all of their business endeavors. Fig Tree & Co. specializes in a fresh perspective on traditional quilting and sewing patterns, focusing on quilts, whimsical kid’s items, home furnishings as well as purses & personal accessories. Fig Tree currently offers more than 200 stand alone patterns and wholesales thousands of patterns to stores both nationally and internationally.

She has written several books with Leisure Arts, Martingale & Co. and Wiley & Sons. She is a regular contributor to both national and international publications such as American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilts & More, American Quilt Retailer and Quiltmania. Her work and studio have been featured in various venues including Quiltmania [French], The Quiltmakers [British], Les Edicion de Saxe [French], Australian Patchwork & Quilting, Where Women Create. Joanna also teaches several classes for Craftsy and lectures and teaches nationally and internationally.
