...bringing a fresh look to your fabric...

Deane Christiansen (Deane Beesley Designs Inc)

For as long as she can remember, Deane Beesley has been surrounded by creative, inspiring, crafting people.  One of her fondest childhood memories is sitting beside her Grandma on a floral print couch, learning how to crochet!  From there she learned latch hook, macramé and knitting.  Deane also loved to draw.Doodling in every one of her mom’s recipe books became a daily habit.  Her talented mom Linda also made Deane’s childhood clothing, so it’s no wonder she soon learned to sew as well! 

In her early 20’s, Deane took a Beginners Quilting Class and fell in love!   She was hooked!  Quilting was her calling.  Deane soon started working at her local quilt store and became quite proficient and excelled at her craft.  Making quilt, teaching classes, writing patterns and selling sewing machines made her realize how much she loved the quilting business.  A few years later she had the opportunity to own her very own quilt store!

But her dreams never stopped there.  Deane’s passion for creating led her to a career in fabric design.  

Her love for vintage and modern marry beautifully in her artwork.  She loves to experiment with different types of media including drawing, painting and stamping.

Deane draws her inspiration from many places, but #1 in her heart is family.  To bring her thoughts to life on fabric and then make a quilt from is what sings to her soul.
