Debi Zeinert has been a calligrapher as long as she can remember. After working full time and doing wedding calligraphy at night and on weekends, in the spring of 2001 she quit her job and started The Blooming Quill. Working happily out of her home studio, she takes care of over 200 brides each year. She is the newsletter co-editor and former president of IAMPETH (International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting), and current president of Milwaukee based Cream City Calligraphers.
