Short Biography

Dede Ogden was first involved with needlework as a child with the help of a caring aunt. After studying interior design at the University of Kansas 40 years ago, her needlework interests bloomed again. In these years she has developed an internationally known business, producing handpainted canvaswork designs.

Early in her business, she found that individuals and shops needed assistance in canvas embellishment and shading techniques. So a teaching career also bloomed which has included Callaway Gardens Needle Arts School, the American Needlepoint Guild and Embroidery Guild of America national seminars and local chapters nationwide.

Dede has been honored to judge various needlework exhibits. Dede also conducts stitching retreats in California, the Caribbean, England, China and Canada to advance knowledge at all levels in canvaswork. Her stitching designs and techniques can be seen in numerous needlework publications, stores and now online. Dede was also the winner of the Ten Award from the National Needlework Association in 2004.
