About Olive Us Girls

Olive us girls came about when three very different women with similar passions and goals joined forces to share their creative ideas. Now that they are all empty nesters, they are ready to create and share something new and special with Olive You!

Andrea enjoys being creative in all aspects of her life.  She loves fabric crafting & paper crafting so much that she has a dedicated room in her home for each. She began sewing in her 7th grade home economics class and hasn’t stopped since. She jumped at the opportunity to work for a chain of retail fabric stores for most of her career. Her style is modern contemporary with a touch of tradition. She is married to her true love, mom to three kind, smart, and successful children, a loving min-pin dog 'Olive', and grandma to two creative and energetic boys. Retired and surrounded by fabric she wants to share her love of sewing and quilting with others.

Debbie is passionate about fabric and design. Whether it's a quilt for a grandchild, a gift for a friend, or a daughter’s wedding gown, the fabric mix and design choice bring it all to life. She is excited about color, texture, and pattern. She is married to Mark, husband of 37+ years, has three amazing daughters (yes she made two of their wedding gowns), and five adorable grandchildren (all boys until a recent little girl arrived). She started at Washington State University studying design and fine arts and eventually made her way to the  sewing and quilting world. Through her many experiences in the fabric industry, she has found that her passion lies in the creative design and coordination process.  

Although many people call her mom; Janet is a wife to her sweet husband Doug, mother of three grown children and grandmother of eight beautiful grandchildren. She is a homemaker, quilter, crafter, and general expert on everything fabric. She has a romantic retro style and loves soft colors, especially periwinkle. As a manager of a fabric and craft store for 20+ years, creating with fabric and color has become second nature to her. A new chapter in her life has started; designing patterns and developing fun projects is going to be a welcome challenge.
