Debbie Kauffman is drawing with needles. A maker at heart, she creates beautiful things for the home.  She uses a variety of materials and techniques, including fiber, thread and paint.  She has a strong interest in using what’s already here, often recycling, re-purposing and reclaiming found items.

In long arm quilting, her passion lies in bringing a quilt to life with color, line and texture. Every quilt tells it’s own story and supplies clues as to what it needs to be complete.
The stitching continues to tell the story through drawing and sculpting with thread.
She takes pleasure in magnifying the details, fashioning a pleasing layout and bringing her creative energy to each project.
Known for her creativity and attention to detail, her work has been exhibited across the country and resides in private collections.

In teaching, she has a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to share. She strives to make her classroom a judgement free zone where creativity and learning can flourish.

She is also the co-founder & current President of the Northwind Stitchers. A regional long-arm support group based in her hometown, Minot, North Dakota.
