About Deborah Kreiling, Simplicity Pattern Company
Simplicity Pattern Company has been my home for over 37 years. My tenure with Simplicity has taken me from writing sewing directions in the “primer” department through a wide variety of positions to my current one as Design Development Director. My passion for sewing equals my passion for being involved every day in the creation of our product. In my current position I am involved in every step, from planning to selection and overseeing the pattern development through to the finished product. Daily I work with each patternmaker, seamstress, writer, illustrator and quality control editor. My goal is to make sure that what we have created as a sewing pattern can be successfully and happily sewn at home. Being a part of this process and this team inspires me to sew most of my own clothing and to always be on the hunt for new methods in garment construction and fitting techniques so they can be adapted into a pattern for the home sewer. I travel each year to Consumer Home Sewing Shows showcasing Simplicity Patterns in Fashion Shows as well as teaching sewing classes. In addition I have four classes live on Creative Bug, teaching a variety of sewing and fitting techniques and two more classes will launch this fall. Separate from my daily Simplicity life, I am an avid road cyclist and a fifth degree black belt in karate.
