The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Deborah Slechta as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“It gives me great pleasure to present Deborah with this important honor,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “I applaud her for using her expertise to build a successful business enterprise.”

Deborah Slechta’s passion for quilting and sewing inspired her to open It’s Sew Moab last year, a unique shop located in Moab, UT, where Ms. Slechta had recently moved. The shop is fully stocked with beautiful fabrics from places as far away as Australia and India that are perfect for not only creating quilts but clothes and home furnishings. It’s Sew Moab is the destination spot for those who, like Ms. Slechta, love to quilt and sew.

In addition to offering customers the fabrics, kits and other supplies they need, Ms. Slechta also holds a variety of quilting and sewing classes. From eight-week introductory sessions to holiday gift-making workshops to weekly “open sew” nights, It’s Sew Moab is perfect for both beginners and experts. Every month, she publishes an informative newsletter that lets customers know about scheduled events and exciting shop happenings.

As Owner, Ms. Slechta ensures that inventory is up-to-date, manages staff, and handles merchandising, advertising and financial transactions. As she notes in a recent newsletter, Ms. Slechta’s hard work is paying off: “I have been asking everyone since day one to be patient with me in turning It’s Sew Moab into the best fabric shop in Utah,” she writes. “You all have been terrific. The shop is thriving, and I am happy! Moab is officially my home!”
