Susan Big creates on-of-a-kind fiber art pieces for table and for display. Working with silk and other textiles that are often embellished with hand embroidery and beadwork, she produces contemporary motifs for traditional ritual items. Combining elements of Jewish tradition and texts and sometimes humor, she designs unique challah covers, art quilts, Seder items and hangings for Sukkah decorations. Her pieces have been juried into exhibits across the US and in Canada. She has presented several needlework workshops to the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Needlework and to LIMMUD including her popular “Gefelted Fish” program.
