Designer and author, Minki Kim does!

Minki Kim is a fabric and pattern designer with her own whimsical style. As a formally trained sculptor and self-taught sewist, she found that designing fabrics and creating art with fabric and thread were natural steps in her evolution as an artist.

Minki discovered sewing as a creative outlet when her children were small. She wanted to capture the beauty of ordinary moments, first with hand embroidery and later by recreating them with her sewing machine and fabric—literally drawing with thread. Capturing ordinary moments in beautiful sewing illustrations to make keepsake snapshots of daily life has become Minki’s signature style.

Her first book, Sew Illustrated—35 Charming Fabric & Thread Designs, was coauthored with Kristen Esser and published by Stash Books, an imprint of C&T Publishing. Minki has also designed several fabric collections for Riley Blake Designs. Originally from Korea, she now calls Southern California home. She lives with her husband and three daughters.
