June Presenter is Debra Malone-Reeves

Debra started making purses and wallets 20 years ago when she and her friend Kathy, saw a lady at a Jazzercise class with an adorable ‘Rag Quilt’ purse. When they found out how much the lady paid for the purse, she told Kathy she could make those for a lot less. Well, that started the journey that led to more purses because she couldn’t find what she wanted at the store, at the price she wanted to pay. Many purses and totes later, she and her sister took a workshop at the Branson AQS Quilt Show for a clutch purse. As part of the presentation, the instructor had a trunk show of purses and bags, some of which were cork. Well, that was it, she and her sister, Cathy, (different Cathy from above) ventured into using cork for wallets and purses. Next on the list is to learn how to use vinyl and leather!

Enjoy her story as she shares her journey and shows how her bag-making progressed to what it is today.

Workshop will be held on Saturday, June 29th from Noon to 4:00 p.m. at Fabric Fanatics in Plano, Texas. Signup at the June guild meeting. Cost is $40 per person.
