Deborah Moebes writes Whipstitch, a blog about modern sewing. After a decade as a schoolteacher and a short career as an archaeologist, Deborah stumbled (kinda backward) into sewing and has never looked back. She's the author of two books, Stitch by Stitch and the upcoming Stitch Savvy, and is the founder of Atlanta's original modern sewing lounge. She also has four kids, a husband, a (lovely but largely imagined) garden, a fantastic mid-century modern ranch (which is the subject of many a Pinterest post), a dog and (soon to be, if the children get their way) two fish. She firmly believes that sewing is for everyone, and that you'll learn the most if you jump in with both feet and give it a shot, even if you're not quite sure what you're doing. She is also quite adamant that everything ought to have pockets. Currently, Deborah is working on plans for a new book, sewing almost constantly for her new house, designing a series of video-based tablet-friendly sewing patterns, and working her way through a backlog of quilting projects.
