Sue Hunter is a knitter whose creative eye admires all craft and textile design. She is intrigued by deconstructing everyday objects and reimagining them as knitted pieces. Sue created a line of hand-knit jewelry, Modern Fibre, which features modern, wearable shapes hand-knit in natural fibers. After 11 years in New York, Sue moved to Toronto, Canada, where she works as a librarian while also volunteering at the Textile Museum of Canada. Part of her heart will always belong to NYC.
She is co-creator, with Karima Sundarji, of the Straphangers Lounge, which is a textile-based New York City subway car and platform installation. It incorporates the art, historical objects, and nostalgia of the subway rendered in textiles. The Straphangers Lounge offers a space to sit, daydream, and knit (just like on the real subway!). It is an homage to the mobile museum that is the NYC subway.
