Meet Your Quilting Instructor

Meet Debbie Kanlenty

Meet Debbie Kanlenty

Hello, I’m Deborah “Debbie” Kalenty .  I live in Central New Jersey (have lived here my entire life);  I earned a Bachelors degree in Accounting and worked in Corporate America for many years.   I have been quilting since 1989 (so almost 30 years), and have thoroughly enjoyed learning new tools and techniques along the way.   

 As a stay at home Mom of 2 children (now grown), I decided I wanted to work ‘part time’ and still be home for my kids.  So why not work in something that I enjoyed!  I opened my online quilt store, in 2005.    At first, it was only online, but then I began vending at area quilt shows.   I discovered Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools and learned how much they improved my quilting skills.  I became a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor in March 2014.  While I taught quilting classes before becoming Certified, I’ve taught much more regularly and on more subjects since.  

 Over the last several years I’ve enjoyed traveling while lecturing, teaching, vending and designing my own patterns.  I’ve had several patterns published in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazines.  I’ve also had my quilts accepted into Nationally Judged quilt shows. 

 I love teaching beginners or those who are new to our tools.  As students see our improved techniques and the accuracy gained while using these tools, they get SO excited—-it is a joy for me to see!   I look forward to meeting you on this cruise, and adding an enthusiastic spark to your quilting abilities!

These two bright ones are “sisters” (a set). When you cut and piece the blocks in the left quilt, the left overs are used to make the quilt on the right .

Debbie is going to share her quilting techniques to help you create these beautiful quilts!
