Episode #59: Malka Dubrawsky

October 19th, 2015

My guest on today's episode is Malka Dubrawsky. Malka is a fabric designer and quilter who is best known for her hand dyed and pattern fabrics. She has a degree in studio art from the University of Texas in Austin and trained to be a printmaker, but finding herself home with young children and without a press she began to work in fiber art. After several years exploring art quilts, Malka became interested in connecting with people more directly by creating functional items out of her own hand dyed and patterned fabrics. Today she designs and sews quilts and pillows and creates hand dyed yardage, all of which she sells in her online shop, A Stitch in Dye. Malka is the author of two craft books, is an instructor on Craftsy, designs fabrics for Moda, and will soon be opening a maker space in Austin, Texas where she lives.
