Frau Fiber, was born in Apoloda Germany, September 13, 1966. She worked in the local garment and knitting factories until the wall came down and she and many of her comrades lost their jobs to China. In 2006, at the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar Germany, she met Carole Frances Lung, a former garment worker and artist from the united states. They became fast friends, and in the fall of 2006, Frau Fiber moved to Chicago where she began the Sewing Rebellion at Mess Hall in Rodgers Park. Frau Fiber has traveled the US and the world creating soft guerrilla actions, making apparel production transparent. She now lives in Long Beach, CA, where she tracks the import of textile goods into the port. While her work is futile she perseveres.
