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.

QSDS - Ohio - Marks Class - Dorothy Caldwell

Our first two days was a stitch class with Dorothy Caldwell. These first samples are Kantha Quilts from the Bihar region of northern India. They are known for their rows of tiny stitches which are in effect the "quilting" although their is no batting. The quilts tell stories.
