Mark Dunn, president and owner of Moda Fabrics, began his career in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1966 as a third-generation thread and yarn sales representative. In 1985, he received the “Man of the Year” award for the sewing industry from the American Jewish Committee. Dunn attended the University of South Carolina but has lived in Dallas, Texas for the past 33 years. His love for the quilting industry plays out in his personal life as well as in business. Dunn has become an avid collector of antique and art quilts, and his eclectic collecting habits provide him with a way to invest in today's artists and quiltmakers. Dunn is committed to preserving the heritage and future of the textile industry.
