Debra Webster is a self-taught patchworker and quilter who finally learned to sew after many years as an English teacher in schools and universities and hasn’t stopped since. She enjoys making all types of patchwork, and mostly quilts by hand.
Debra has made quilts for the children’s charity Project Linus, and is currently setting up a social sewing group for Mind in Camden. Her greatest love is the traditional and ancient method of English paper piecing, a lovely way of hand sewing patchwork in exactly the same way it has been done for centuries: a slow, gentle and highly therapeutic process.
In general Debra is a passionate advocate of a relaxed, creative and stress-free approach to patchwork and quilting, in order to make it as accessible to as many people as possible, and to bring as many people together as possible.
