Marcus Fabrics is thrilled to announce the debut 100% wool and coordinating cotton collections by award-winning folk artist,  Rebekah L. Smith.  Rebekah grew up surrounded by people who loved and lived amongst antiquescelebrating the simple lines and bold colors of early American folk art. Her degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh did not satisfy her need to work with her hands, so she was challenged by her mother to paint a cupboard in the Rufus Porter style. Ever since, Rebekah has celebrated her affinity for old surfaces and textures, moving from the world of painting into the world of wool and other textiles.


Currently, wool consumes her time - she designs and creates wool appliqu from her own hand-dyed wool using both natural and commercial dyes, and has published three.  She and her daughter Kelsey currently work out of her studio, a small cottage behind the 1838 house Rebekah and her husband are restoring in the Western Reserve of Ohio.
