Going, going, almost gone! Fiberart International 2013 closes Sunday 8/18

Of course it’s on your summer bucket list.  But if you’ve been super busy with the Bridge, maybe you haven’t had time to take in the fabulous fiber show that gave birth to Knit the Bridge.

You might be especially interested in Carol Milne’s personality-plus knitted glass socks… Sandra Jane Heard’s steel tape measure sculptures that pay homage to early suffragettes… Roz Ritter’s wedding dress richly embroidered with sentiments from her parents’ love letters… or Samantha Field’s raucously reclaimed and lavishly beaded afghans.  For fiber lovers like us, every piece rewards your attention and feeds your creativity.

Check them out online at fiberartinternational.org and steal a little time to see them in person this weekend.  Fiberart International 2013 closes this Sunday, August 18, at both Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and Society for Contemporary Craft.
