About Me


Hello! My name is Deb McGuire and I make quilts. I say it is a hobby, but it’s clearly a compulsion.

I love the rich history of quilts of the past, but I love to reinterpret them for today.

I have been a quilting teacher and a quilt shop owner. I’m now training as a longarm quilter in the process of setting up a new part time PlainStitch Longarm business and I also work for The Quilters Guild of the British Isles as their Marketing Director for the charity’s trading arm, responsible for sponsorship, retail and commercial activities and running their digital marketing programme.
