American Craft Council Show: Fiber Focus: Part 2

Continuing on our fiber fest journey, let's check out Columbia, Md, artist Susan Levi-Goerlich. Susan creates amazingly intricate landscapes with felt techniques and needlepoint. Her work is so much fun to walk up close to and step away to watch the picture come alive. I had a hard time tearing myself away from Susan's Stitched Impressions booth.

And now, for something completely different! I realize this is stretching the definition of our theme of local (the Bronx) and fiber (wire), but the work of Reina Mia Brill is knitted, and it is beyond inspiring, so I had to share it. Let's bend those rules, shall we?

Two more ACC installments to come!
