About the Author
Ruth Rae is a classically trained jeweler. During Ruth's tenure as a metal smith she began to experiment with other forms of media and techniques. As time has progressed Ruth's true passion has become "mixed media fiber art." Ruth's pieces are recognized for their unexpected yet elegant combinations of altered fabrics combined with found objects and words that are bound together by hand and machine stitching. Ruth's work has been featured in galleries across the country, countless art publications as well as Quilting Arts TV and she has two workshop DVDs and travels around the county teaching jewelry and fabric workshops. Ruth authored two books, A Charming Exchange, and Layered, Tattered and Stitched: A Fabric Art Workshop. Visit her website at www.ruthrae.com.
