About Cathy

Cathy Wiggins is a self-taught quilter who truly loves sharing her passion with others through teaching, lecturing, and judging. In 2003, after 20+ years in the telecommunications industry, she gave up the corporate world to become a quilter. Cathy has several published books on her whimsical techniques, has been featured in virtually all of the well-known quilting magazines, and has filmed numerous quilting television shows. More recently, she has turned her focus to leather and is pioneering the art of quilting on leather with the launch of her own leather line for the home sewer. In the last two years, she has had multiple solo exhibitions of her artistic creations throughout the country including IQA Houston, Road to California and MQX to name a few. In early 2016, MQX Quilt Festivals honored Cathy for her innovation and pioneering spirit by creating a new award category entitled, "New Traditions in Textiles, the Cathy Wiggins Award"


Solo exhibitions include-

  • Retrospect exhibition covering 15 years of quilting at the 2015 Machine Quilting Expo
  • Feature Artist at the 2016 Road to California Quilt show
  • Just for Fun exhibition at the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival
  • Cowboys, Horses, Quilting and Leather exhibition at the 2016 IQA Houston Quilt Festival.
