Heather Ross New York, NY
Heather Ross grew up in an extremely isolated corner of northern Vermont known as The Northeast Kingdom. Her family lived in an 18th century one-room schoolhouse that had once served a long-vanished mountain community and was by then home to a prolific family of proud but disorganized house gnomes, for whom Ross learned to sew and knit during the long winters. Today Heather is an illustrator, author, and textile designer with a large following in the crafts and sewing markets. Her textile designs are among the most recognizable in the retail fabric market and are a favorite among home sewers of clothing, accessories, and decor for children. Heather wrote Weekend Sewing, a best-selling how-to sewing book. She teaches sewing and crafts to women and girls of all ages through her popular sewing retreats. Heather’s client list includes a wide range of product lines and companies, including high end home decor and fashion fabrics for Kokka of Japan, paper goods for Chronicle Books, original artwork for Polar Bears International, for whom she acts as artistic ambassador, and even surfboards (Walden Surfboards, Artists Series Signature Line). Heather Ross’s home and studio are in New York City.
