Starting by knitting, crocheting, and sewing her own clothes as a tween/teen, Debby transitioned into quilting while expecting her first child. Thirty-plus years and thousands of quilts later, she is an award-winning quilter who has published quilts, patterns, books, and articles/columns in major quilting magazines. She teaches at national and international quilting shows, has filmed HQ Sweet Sixteen® instructional DVDs and has taught multiple machine quilting classes on Craftsy, Annie’s Creative Studio, Annie’sCatalog.com, as well self-produced online classes.
Since Debby’s relationship with Handi Quilter began in 2006, she has owned almost every machine produced by Handi Quilter. She currently quilts using the HQ Forte® with Pro-Stitcher® and the entire family of HQ Stitch® machines.
Debby loves working with new free-motion quilters because she knows that they can succeed with just enough encouragement. Debby is obsessed with the precision of ruler quilting on domestic, stationary, and longarm machines and spices up those lines with whimsical free-motion quilting that appeals to quilters of all skill levels.
When not traveling to spread her fun brand of quilting, Debby creates in her studio in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. Debby and her husband enjoy plotting how best to spoil their grandchildren.
