Instructor Bio
Debbie Dison

Debbie began sewing as a child and made most of her clothes for high school and college. She learned to knit while living in Germany. Upon returning to the US, Debbie learned how to spin yarn and weave. Of course the next step was to get a flock of merino sheep! For over 20 years Debbie raised and showed prize winning sheep and fleeces. In 2014  her mother in-law passed away and Debbie inherited several Bernina sewing machines, parts to 15 quilts ( with no directions) and tons of fabric and supplies. She then embarked on her quilting career. Her first Judy Neimeyer quilt was " Glacier Star".  Her " Diamond Wedding Ring " quilt won 3rd place at the 2019 Ky State Fair. Debbie enjoys sewing and traveling with her retired husband.
