Debbie started Painted Scarf ByYOU because she fell in love with the art form after seeing it on the internet and then seeing it firsthand when a friend showed her a scarf her grandchildren had made for her while on vacation. The scarf’s vibrant colors and beautiful design combined with it’s personalized uniqueness intrigued her enough to travel out of town to learn the necessary techniques and skills to turn something so simple (the scarf) into something so special that it becomes a piece of wearable art. 

After seeing the joy and wonderment on her friends’ and family’s faces when she gave them a scarf or pocket square made just for them, she immediately knew she had to share this creative outlet with others.

Painted Scarf ByYOU is an interactive business perfect for birthday parties, team building and corporate events, ladies nights out, bachelorette parties and more.
