Debbie comes from a long line of quilters in her family starting with her great-grandmother. She started sewing as a young girl, making clothing and home decorating projects. Debbie began her quilting journey fifteen years ago, and has not looked back. She fell in love with the Tucker tools, and after meeting Deb Tucker at several quilt shows decided that she wanted to become a certified instructor. She as been a certified instructor since 2013.
Debbie has combined her love of Studio 180 tools with her passion for teaching. She teaches classes at several quilt shops, guest lectures and teaches workshops for quilt guilds, and vends Studio 180 products at quilt shows. Debbie has contributed to both of Deb Tucker's books, Hidden Treasures and Royal Treasures. She has also taught at the Studio 180 Academy held in the fall of each year.
Debbie currently lives full time as a financial analyst for a health care system. She also runs her business Kreative Quilting on a part-time basis. Debbie looks forward to retiring from her full time job in July and devoting 100% of her time to her business.
