Kim Eichler-Messmer {Podcast Episode #137}

Today’s podcast guest is Kim Eichler-Messmer. Living in Kansas City, Kim is a teacher, author of Modern Color: An Illustrated Guide to Dyeing Fabric for Modern Quilts, fabric designer for Marcus Fabrics, owner of the Kansas City Textile Studio, textile artist and wife. Growing up in a creative household, Kim learned to sew from her father. She received her bachelor’s degree in print making and master’s degree in fine art/textiles. She has been an artist in residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and currently teaches at the Kansas City Art Institute.

During our conversation, we talk about the common concerns people have in their first fabric dying class, designing her first fabric line, the sustainability of making, when she decides to say no and how she gets out of a creative funk. I hope you enjoy the episode.

  1. Hello there,

    I have been scrolling through different podcasts to find relevant and newer information on a few topics and noticed that none of your podcasts seem to have dates listed anywhere. As someone who searches for information both for specific techniques (which aren’t necessarily time sensitive) and the latest trends in marketing (highly date relevant), it just struck me that many podcasts don’t include dates. Just thought I would bring it up as someone who always looks for dates on stuff.
