My name is Alyx Jacobs, I am a quilter, designer and natural dyer from Kansas City, MO. As a maker, I am delicate, thoughtful, and detailed. As a person, I am honest, bold and sarcastic. The dichotomy between my work and personality makes me a better maker with each piece that I create. Creating a world where utility and design come together as a necessity rather than desire is what I strive to do with each of my pieces.
