Debra Rutledge

Location: Central Texas

Hobbies: Crafting, kayaking, reading, home decorating.

Favorite Type of Sewing: Home decor, garment, embroidery, and just started quilting.

I learned to sew my school clothes from my mom, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers at a young age. My passion for sewing evolved from the desire to create unique apparel, crafts, and home decor. As an Educator/Trainer for BERNINA of America, my responsibility is to schedule the events that are presented in BERNINA dealerships across the country. Additionally, I represent BERNINA at several quilt shows, dealer events, and trainings. My projects have been featured and published in Through the Needle magazine and online publications. Prior to working for BERNINA of America, I worked for a BERNINA dealer in the Central Texas area where I led the Software and Embroidery Clubs.
