Hi, I'm Debbie. I’m a professional Pattern Maker who brings ideas to life using Gerber CAD drafting software. I received my Bachelor's of Applied Design in Fashion Design & Technology from Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 2004 and I have been working in the fashion industry since 2002 and sewing since 1994. Throughout my career, I’ve worked for small startups as well as large corporations like lululemon athletica.

When I was little, I grew up wanting to be a veterinarian but after working part-time at an animal hospital as a teenager, I decided there was too much death and disease, so Design School won out. I love all animals, big and small. I’ve been a mama to fish, a rat, a rabbit, and currently a 12 yr old ragdoll cat. We don’t have a dog right now because we’re not home often enough... but one day!!!!!

I am Mama to an 8yo girl and a 4yo boy. I'm so thankful for my hubby's support.
At night, I work on these Arla Designs dog tuxedos at my home studio in Silver Valley, Maple Ridge.

Thank you for your support.

Convo me with any questions :) Don't be shy! I'm pretty quick to reply.

Hey everyone, I’m Debbie! I’m a professional Pattern Maker who brings ideas to life using Gerber CAD drafting software.

I received my Bachelor's of Applied Design in Fashion Design & Technology from Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 2004 and I have been working in the fashion industry since 2002 and sewing since 1994.

I’ve worked for small startups as well as large corporations like lululemon athletica.

Family is my first priority. Miss L is 8, Master E is 4. Hubby S is a busy guy too. I’m so thankful for their support.

I had always wanted to be a veterinarian when I grew up but after working part-time at an animal hospital during high school I decided there was too much death and disease, so Design School won out. I love all animals, big and small. I’ve been a mama to fish, a rat, a rabbit, and currently a 12 yr old ragdoll cat.
