Debi Schmitz

Coffee Cup CozyDebi Schmitz has been a craft-industry professional designer for over 25 years and loves crafting as much today as she did when she started. Her life has been filled with creative direction, beginning with her mother’s and grandmother’s never ending encouragement and love of crafts and further driven by her involvement with Girl Scouts and 4-H.

Debi’s crafting ability and knowledge enabled her to play a very active role in her four children’s lives. She became the Girl Scout leader, 4-H leader, and Boy Scout leader; not to mention the “go-to” person for every fundraising event, school project, and class production.

Folded Phone CaseShe has written over a dozen craft books, countless magazine patterns, numerous editorials, volumes of manufacturer pattern sheets, and has taught extensively around the country.

She says that she thoroughly loves the challenge of combining different raw materials to create something unique and fun. Adding, “The process is in my blood from the idea to the finished project and written pattern. I hope you enjoy my designs!”
