Debby Schuh is coming to CraftFusion

Debby Schuh is a memory collector.  From the time she was a little girl, she has always collected bits and pieces of her life and stored them in scrapbooks and all kinds of creative projects.  Her years as a school teacher, then as a teacher, designer, and author in the scrapbook industry, have led to a busy career teaching classes at stores and events throughout the U.S., as well as several other countries around the world.  She travels regularly teaching classes at stores and events, where her inspiring classes feature innovative techniques with paper and a wide assortment of mediums to preserve our stories and photos.  She has inspired students all over the world to record their lives and take the techniques she's taught and play in their memory keeping and art projects.  When she isn't traveling, Debby lives in Buffalo, New York, with her husband and has two married sons who live too far away.  She misses them all every day!  You can read more about Debby's classes and adventures on her blog at debbyschuh.typepad.com.

Debby will be sharing  4  exciting Workshops with us, so be sure to visit the CraftFusion Website for all the details and information for each one.  You'll want to call early to save your seat, though, because SEATING IS VERY LIMITED and spaces are going fast!
