I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Sewing With a Group at Greek Peak.

 Two weeks ago I joined a group sewing at Greek Peak.  I worked on an African quilt I had started.
 Genie Barnes showed us and described some antique quilt blocks she bought.
And she and several others bought some of my jackets.

Vending at Watkins Glen

 I was lucky three weeks ago to vend at the Watkins Glen quilt show.
 It was held in a community center at a mobile home park.
 It was an out of the way place and I was pleasantly surprised that so many people found it.
 Genie Barnes appraised a lot of quilts.
 It was sponsored by the O Susannah Quilt shop in Watkins Glen.
 There were some really beautiful quilts.

I love the bunny quilt.

Unfortunately it was not air conditioned.  It was a good weekend to catch up with a lot of friends
