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 Studio Day Three

Today was a busy sewing day with two drop in guests. Inspector Suki began the day in Donna's chair and spent a lot of time indoors to her dismay as there was a big black dog visiting which she didn't appreciate. Marcia began work on an apron for the upcoming RAFA booth at the Clothesline Festival.
Caris brought in her beautiful "big apple" vest which she made from a packet of fabric purchased at the City Quilter in NYC. She is looking for a "big apple" button to decorate the front.
Donna made a lot of progress today. By the end of the day she had the fronts and sleeves all finished and was wrapping up the back.
Caris models her gorgeous silk jacket. She only has handwork yet to finish.

Marcia holds up her finished apron. It was made from pieces constructed at a Nancy Crow Workshop.

Varda models her jacket still in the "pinned" stage.
Nancy Hicks dropped by to model the gorgeous vest made during the last class. The photos don't do it justice.

Beth Brandkamp, showing shooting the photo, also dropped by to work on sketches for an upcoming workshop she is taking with Ruth McDowell.

Liz almost has her jacket pieces completed. There will be green bands around the neck front and back.
