Collections Etchings - Charm Pack - Moda
Beauty, inspiration, and support for a charitable cause—that’s a trio that’s hard to beat. And all three are embodied in Etchings by Howard Marcus, fabrics that evoke the past, while doing good in the present.
Etchings is the latest Collection for a Cause, a series of fabrics based on antique textiles from the quilts and mill book collections of Moda’s president, Mark Dunn. The very first Collection for a Cause honored the memory of Pam Wieland, a Moda sales rep who succumbed to ovarian cancer, and benefitted Gilda’s House, a social and emotional support community for people with cancer. Since then a portion of the Collections’ proceeds have benefited groups as varied as Habitat for Humanity, 4-H Clubs of America, and Alzheimer’s research. More recently, the Collections have supported quiltrelated organizations including the Quilt Alliance, International Quilt Museum, National Quilt Museum, and others.
This year’s Collection benefits the Parkinson’s Foundation (www.parkinson.org), which works to study and treat a disease that affects many, including folks affiliated with Moda. “We’re a pretty tightknit family here,” says Josh Dunn, Moda’s VP of Development. “Many employees have been here the majority of their working years and are ingrained Collections for a Cause Returns with Etchings by Howard Marcus by Linzee McCray @seamswrite The Moda Team at the 2022 Parkinson's Walk in Dallas, Texas. 2 in the fabric of our lives.
