In our Fine Finishes segment, Proptologist Jay Duckworth joins the crew—and makes them cry! He created commemorative medals for our sewing machines so future generations know that they fought covid-19. Stay tuned!

Open Studios | Debby Brown
Starting by knitting, crocheting, and sewing her own clothes as a tween/teen, Debby transitioned into quilting while expecting her first child. Thirty plus years and thousands of quilts later, she is an award-winning quilter who has published quilts, patterns, books, and articles/columns in major quilting magazines.
Debby loves working with new free-motion quilters because she knows that they can succeed with just enough encouragement. Debby is obsessed with the precision of ruler quilting on domestic, sit-down, and longarm machines and spices up those lines with whimsical free-motion quilting that appeals to quilters of all skill levels.

Fine Finishes | Jay Duckworth
Jay Duckworth is the props master behind the props in Hamilton. He is a professor at Pace University and works at The Public Theater in NYC. When covid-19 hit in 2020, he witnessed firsthand the rush all sewists and quilters made to create masks and PPE as the pandemic took hold. He created medallions to commemorate the work we did to help fight the pandemic. “This Sewing Machine Fought Covid-19” will stay with your machine so future generations know what we did.
