Podcast Episode #98: Kathy Miller and Michael Steiner, Co-Founders of Michael Miller FabricsJune 5, 2017 / byAbby / Categories : Feeds
On this episode of the While She Naps podcast. I’m Abby Glassenberg. Today we’re talking about running a fabric company with my guests, Kathy Miller and Michael Steiner. Kathy and Michael are the co-founders of Michael Miller Fabrics.
Bloom by Sandra Clemons for Michael Miller Fabrics.
We begin by talking about Kathy’s and Michael’s careers before co-founding the company together. Kathy and Michael then explain how they met and came together to form their own fabric company. Michael Miller Fabrics has evolved considerably since its early days and you’ll hear how and why it changed, and how the business was funded early on.
We talk about Quilt Market and how the role of trade shows is changing. We also talk about how Michael Miller has differentiated itself in a crowded marketplace. Kathy and Michael consider the future of fabric manufacturing and how digital printing might change things.
And, of course, I ask Michael and Kathy to recommend great stuff they’re enjoying right now. Michael recommends learning a new craft using online tutorials.
