Skills and Techniques
I am a very experienced seamstress but by no means an expert in all areas. I can do lots of different things but sewing is the skill I have developed and enjoyed for the greatest part of my life, over 40 years now.

Hello! My name is Debra - I have been making things for about 40 years now, and I am a true cat lover. I cannot get enough of cat fabrics, cat jewelry, cat accessories.
Yep, I am a cat-a-holic. I only have one kitty to share my life with but he is the inspiration for all things cat in my life. His name is Chester, and I will mention him a lot on this site at various times. I wish I could have more cats but I have to settle for one right now!
I love the beauty and grace of these little creatures and how the purring furry presence of my feline friend makes me feel better physically and emotionally. Pets of all kinds are great therapy and so much more fun and usually less expensive!
I enjoy making out of all kinds of different materials, but I love working with fabric most of all because I enjoy sewing. Getting to work with cat-theme fabrics is the most fun of anything I do since it combines my love of kitty cats with my love of fabric!
I have another studio on ArtFire...you can find other types of gift and accessory items there. The name is www.SewBizzyGifts.artfire.com if you would like to check that out.

Please contact me if you have any questions at all about anything to do with my handcrafted items or my policies.
This is the inspiration behind my daily work on cat-related items - my kitty Chester! He is a wonderful furry buddy.
Yes, I have lots of photos of Chester...just can't help it...he's very photogenic!
Such a sweet face! He's almost 12 years old in this pic.
For 4 years Chester hid in the tub whenever I had visitors. He quit doing that finally and now comes around to meet everyone and ask for some chin and head rubs. Literally!
