Congratulations to TIGHR members, Liz Alpert Fay and Michelle Sirois-Silver who are represented in the interviews with examples of their diverse work.
Liz creates spontaneous original works with such unusual things as shoelaces hooked onto a wire frame. Her technique is what carries on the rug hooking tradition.
Michelle’s work has been impacted by her awareness of reclaiming and repurposing, using, in the Recovery Method series, hosiery seconds from Katherine Soucie’s clothing line.
