A chance conversation got Debbie Mumm into the fabric design business.
Already well-known for her unique quilt patterns and the author of several quilting books with Rodale Press, Debbie was making the rounds at International Quilt Market in the early 1990's, looking for a specific fabric for a quilt that she was designing. Debbie was chatting with a representative for South Sea Imports and mentioned how hard it was to find cute garden-themed fabric. The SSI rep suggested that Debbie design her own fabric line. The rest is history. Now, 34,000,000 yards and countless collections later, creating the artwork and designs for fabric is still Debbie's passion. And, her success with SSI became her entry into the licensing business where Debbie creates artwork for gift, stationery, craft, and home products.
An artist and entrepreneur from an early age, Debbie finds the visual richness in everything she sees and interprets it in fresh, original ways. She communicates a genuine light-heartedness and kindness through her designs.
Now the author of more than fifty books, Debbie shares her distinctive style with consumers by providing step-by-step directions, tips, and inspiration for quilt, craft, and home decorating projects. Debbie also shares many project ideas on her website, debbiemumm.com, which is updated monthly.
The warmth and richness of country tradition is at the heart of each of Debbie's designs. Her creative passion is to bring those feelings and traditional elements together with fresh palettes and modern themes to create the look of today's country.
