Deborah Fillmer's Profile

About

Hello, I am Deborah Fillmer, aka the Nautical Knitter and proud owner of Arwen's Child Heirloom Clothing.

My husband, Scott, and I, have owned our own business for almost 20 years now, mostly in the crafts and hobby industry. I have created everything from lace knitting patterns to custom heirloom children's clothing. Recently, I graduated with my Masters and have decided to continue the self employment with the management of this Etsy shop.

For the past 20 years, while in the quilting and marketing/sales business, our company invented, designed, and manufactured several products, like the Stick-n-Stitch® stencil, the Quilt Lap Hoop, and the Quilt Hanger. We sold our products world wide, while traveling to every state in the continental U.S. in our motor home (also formally know as a Greyhound Bus) to promote and sell our products…

Hello, I am Deborah Fillmer, aka the Nautical Knitter and proud owner of Arwen's Child Heirloom Clothing.

My husband, Scott, and I, have owned our own business for almost 20 years now, mostly in the crafts and hobby industry. I have created everything from lace knitting patterns to custom heirloom children's clothing. Recently, I graduated with my Masters and have decided to continue the self employment with the management of this Etsy shop.

For the past 20 years, while in the quilting and marketing/sales business, our company invented, designed, and manufactured several products, like the Stick-n-Stitch® stencil, the Quilt Lap Hoop, and the Quilt Hanger. We sold our products world wide, while traveling to every state in the continental U.S. in our motor home (also formally know as a Greyhound Bus) to promote and sell our products.

In that time, we have held classes and designed all kinds of patterns from quilting, cross-stitch, and crochet, to knitting. As a national teacher, specializing in hand quilting, I have had the pleasure of teaching in some of the largest shows in the country like the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah Kentucky, the Road to California Quilt Show (the largest quilt show in California), and the International Quilt Festival in Houston, among many others across the USA.

Over the years, handwork has become my passion, beyond many other crafts or hobbies that I still enjoy, and I am glad to share some of it with you here. I have several designs in progress, some finished, and some in the mind of my muse waiting in the wings.

I look forward to getting to know you and perhaps creating something special for your Arwen's Child. Deborah
