Michael & Debra's background

Debra Lunn has been making quilts since 1963. While in graduate school in textile
design in 1976 at the University of Minnesota, she began hand-dyeing fabrics for
use in her own quilts. Debra's quilt, Counterpoint, was the first and only piece in
Quilt National '79 (the first exhibition) that was made of hand-dyed fabrics.

In 1988, Debra started hand-dyeing fabrics in gradations to sell to other quilt
makers, traveling to Quilt Shows across the US as a vendor.

In 1991, Debra met Michael Mrowka, and they joined together in the endeavor of
Lunn Fabrics (and also as personal mates). They have been collaborating ever since.
Working together, they expanded Lunn Fabrics, Ltd. to produce fabrics that were
hand-dyed, hand-painted, airbrushed, hand-stamped, and screen printed with a
focus on making special and one-of-a-kind quilting fabrics for quilters. Michael, a
sculptor, painter and a journeyman in the printing industry for 20 years, streamlined
production and invented new techniques. Over the years they have expanded their
repertoire of techniques to include tie-dye/mandala folding resists, potato dextrin
resist, and batik wax resist.

In 1994, Debra and Michael began designing fabric for Robert Kaufman Company.
They created innovative lines of fabric for commercial production, which include
Pointillist Palette, Natural Creations, Vibrations, Prima Materia, Photo Real Clouds,
DYE IT! and Precious Metals. They also designed the colors for Robert Kaufman’s
first major expansion of the KONA color solid fabrics to 100 fabrics.

In 1996, Debra was hurt in a head-on collision with a drunk driver in Paducah
Kentucky, so in October 1998 Debra and Michael quit designing for Robert
Kaufman to focus on their "one of a kind fabrics" and collaborating on a series of
whole cloth and pieced art quilts which are constructed from the best of their one
of a kind fabrics; but mostly to focus on healing Debra’s significant brain injury.

In September 2004, we returned to working with Robert Kaufman and are in
charge of their Batik division called "ARTISAN BATIKS & PATINA HANDPAINTS".
We spend 2-3 months per year in Java managing and designing the ARTISAN
BATIKS Line for Robert Kaufman. We have only begun to push the envelope as far
as what is possible with batiks in our private studio in Central Java.
Debra and Michael’s personal art quilts which feature fabrics that are designed
and/or produced at Lunn Fabrics have continued to be included in national and
international juried and invitational exhibitions.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Unfortunately we are unable to provide wholesale options of our products at this time.

Care instructions

Machine wash cold. Do not bleach. Wash dark colors separately. Tumble dry low. Remove promptly.

What is the minimum yardage I can have cut to order?

1 yard is the smallest cut we will make.

How do I order more than 1 yard?

To order more than 1 yard first select the length (Yard or One & Half Yards) then select the quantity and Add to Cart. To get 2 1/2 yards just add 1 yard to your cart and a One & Half Yard to your cart. All orders will come in 1 continuous piece. The maximum length of any continuous piece is 15 yards.

Can I get a certain fabric out of this bundle?

Unfortunately the fabrics packaged in the bundles we carry are the end quantities of that fabric. The only way to buy these fabrics is to buy the packages they are in.

Do you ship internationally?

Unfortunately we are not shipping internationally due to extreme shipping delays during the current health crisis. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Do you have a retail store?

Our retail store is closed due to the current health crisis. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to get all our latest news. https://www.lunnfabrics.com/gmail.htm

Why do you tear your fabric instead of cutting it?

When fabric is torn the rip is along the grain and you will get a truer straight line.
