Debbie has combined her passions for sewing, quilting, and teaching into Wendt Quilting, a business that is truly on the go. Debbie has a degree in Home Economics Education and eight years of teaching experience in the field. This allows her to influence her classes by breaking down and explaining the many aspects of quilting. Debbie began quilting over 30 years ago and started teaching quilting internationally in 1993 while living in Cairo, Egypt. Debbie now teaches at guilds, shops, and national shows. A unique teaching opportunity even took her to villages in Cambodia! Her article, Teaching the World to Quilt, was published in American Quilter. Debbie develops tools, has self-published two longarm project books, and designed many unique quilt patterns. She was a guest on Quilt It!
