Deb has been a designer for Moda Fabrics since 1996 and has created over 100 collections. Drawing and painting her fabric designs by hand, she loves working with different colors and patterns - the more intricate the better! A life-long passion for art led Deb to teaching art before becoming a designer. Her artwork has been featured on many different products over the years – calendars, greeting cards, garden flags, books, framed prints and more. Recently, she and her husband Scott proudly launched a line of notecards for sewing and quilting enthusiasts titled “Sew Noted”.
Deb and Scott currently live in their new hometown of Yellow Springs, Ohio. With one of their three children on the East Coast, one on the West Coast, and the third next door, life is filled with long-distance calls, traveling and helping watch the twin grandsons that live next door! With traveling to see her children, creating new fabrics and collections, and other types of new art, Deb’s life is happily filled with color, creativity and lots of hugs!
Using artwork from actual fabrics, Deb will share her process of how her hand drawn and hand painted artwork evolves into lovely fabrics by Moda and finds their way to your favorite quilts shops. Her presentation will be casual, with questions welcome. She will end the program with a “Parade of Quilts” that you won’t want to miss.
