Debbie has taught at The Ohio State University and shows her work in many galleries. She works with Goodwill Industries and set up an art studio for individuals with disabilities. This ongoing enterprise enables the participating artists to make an income.
Are you interested in recycling, upcycling and using found materials? Take a look at what some of Debbie’s previous QSDS students have created in her 5-day class “Hand Stitching: Forming Discarded Fabric Into Intimate Sculptural Art.”
It’s amazing what you can do with wool sweaters and skirts that have been thrown into
the wash and felted a bit. Add some other discarded fabrics, a batch of buttons and embroidery floss and it all can become whatever you can imagine.
