Dawn Heese

In February we welcome Dawn Heese, Quiltmania /Martingale author, Marcus fabric designer and wool dyer!

Dawn is a third-generation quilter and stitcher whose love for quilts began when she was a child. Not having known her great grandmother,  she learned all about her through the quilt tops she left behind.   Her grandmother would bring to life the daily happenings of their lives and how each scrap of precious feed sack was kept for a future quilt. 

Dawn designs quilts and punch needle patterns which have a vintage folk art appeal under the name "Linen Closet Designs."  Her work can be seen in international and national magazines, such as Quiltmania, Simply Vintage, Quilt Country, and Primitive Quilts and Projects.  She teaches in France and all over the US,  sharing her love of appliqué and quilting.
