Debbie loves many different types of art but sewing is her passion. She enjoys the energy and creativity of Art Studio on the Boulevard and is excited to be a new instructor. At a young age her grandmother taught her how to sew dolls clothing with a needle and thread and that is where she starts with her beginner students. She later learned how to use sewing patterns and a sewing machine and enjoys teaching these intermediate basics. For those interested in more advanced sewing techniques Debbie provides quilting classes and takes custom requests. She has had several years of experience and graduated from Bethany Nazarene College in Bethany, Oklahoma. Due to her father’s career in the Navy, her family was able to travel and live in many locations but Virginia Beach is her home.
