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.

Jacket Class at Marcia's- Day Two and Three

Inspector Suki checked in early on day two to ensure the class was going well. Marcia laid out her jacket back to check the mitering process for the corners...using a hand woven strip from Thailand.
Donna sews the geisha panel on the jacket back.
Jeanne's jacket begins to come together.

Julie makes a few appliqued squares to weave their way across the front. Beth adds tulip squares and seminole strips for the jacket front.
Marcia's jacket begins to come together with black strips.

Julie adds a panel of hand made silk yoyo's from Thailand to the center panel. The purple background peeks through.

She also brought some other neat pieces she hopes to use in future projects.

Some wonderful yarns add a bit of texture to the jacket.
Inspector Suki drops by for a bit of attention.
Julie tries on her jacket for a last fitting before she sews it together.

Donna adds a couple of strips to the back.
Jeanne has the front and backs done and has added some cording. Beth makes a lot of progress on her jacket.

And Donna arranges some strips for the front. The centerpiece is a pillow with shisha mirrors from India. And of course there was lots of time for talk, pizza and cookies.
