About DebBee's Designs

A designer/teacher of counted canvas needlework since 2003, Debbie Rowley focuses on writing clear, concise instructions for her designs to make them easy to stitch. A background in writing and journalism comes in handy!

 

Debbie specializes in counted canvas needlepoint, and teaches in several venues every year. Her design style features geometric shapes and patterns, reflecting her early love of abstract and modern art. She encourages stitchers to change colors in her designs to their favorites – it’s hard to stitch with a color you don’t love! Threads and stitches introduce elements of texture to a traditionally two dimensional medium. 

 

Debbie is a member of several American Needlepoint Guild chapters and Embroiderer’s Guild of America chapters, and has taught for many shops, ANG and EGA chapters, other retreats and online cyber classes. In addition Debbie is a teaching partner with Needle Arts Mystery Retreat since 2005. She has published designs for Needlepointers (ANG) and Needlepoint Now, as well as other publications.
