Debbie Abrahams has been passionate about hand-knitting ever since she first picked up a pair of knitting needles at the tender age of six.

Firmly focused on hand-knitting, she applied directly from school to Nottingham Trent University to do a BA (Hons) degree in knitwear design. Soon after graduating her association with Rowan Yarns began and she has worked for them as a designer and freelance consultant for the past twenty-five years.

Debbie is the author of six books which include Blankets & Throws To Knit, 25 Cushions To Knit and Design Your Own Knits. Debbie has known fellow designer and co-author of Kaleidoscope, Jane Crowfoot, for over twenty years years and together they launched their handknit and crochet company Inspired Minds six years ago. Since then they have run regular crochet and knitting workshop weekends across the UK.

Debbie’s Mystery Clubs have become a major part of her business. Her unique Blanket, Cushion and Baby Blanket Clubs have captured the imagination of knitters all over the world and Debbie now has a total of over 1000 knitters signing up each year to her annual projects.
