About Dawn Edwards:
Dawn Edwards is a fiber artist specializing in fun, out-of-the ordinary felt hats. She lives and works from her home studio in Plainwell, MI, and sells her work under the name of Felt So Right. Dawn’s hats are often noted for their unique style and technique, brought about through the use of vibrant colors, textures, and sculptural aspects. Dawn states, ‘At the heart of all of my creations, is an eye for meticulous attention to detail. I hope that you’ll enjoy wearing my hats as much as I love designing and creating them.’
In 2012, Dawn, along with great buddy, Nicola Brown of Ireland, were honored to be selected to take over the reins of FeltUnited, a not-for-profit group of international artists whose goal is to connect feltmakers around the globe. Felt United is celebrated annually on the first Saturday of October, uniting feltmakers through various forms of celebrating all things felt. Dawn and Nicola are following in the footsteps and vision of Felt United originators, Elis Vermeulen (the Netherlands) and Cynthia Reynolds (Norway).
Dawn teaches both within the U.S. and internationally. She also hosts several renowned feltmakers from around the world for felting workshops right here in the West Michigan area. Dawn states that, ‘Feltmaking has truly opened windows to the world for me and I am grateful for this most wonderful opportunity.’
Dawn’s felt works/articles have appeared in the book, ‘1000 Artisan Textiles’, the International Feltmakers Association Journal ‘Felt Matters’, fiber magazines, ‘Fiber Art Now’, and the Russian felt magazine, ‘Felt Fashion’.
In addition to the Signature Artists Cooperative, Dawn is a member of the International Feltmakers Association, Surface Design Association, Handweavers Guild of America, and Michigan League of Handweavers.
