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.

Weekend Sew In at Casowasco

This weekend I attended a fabulous sewing weekend at the Retreat at Casowasco on Owasco Lake. This was the view from my spot in the classroom. Nice huh?
This is about half of our space. There was a fireplace with a gas flame, a kitchen and another little room. The classroom was below the chapel. There were sheets on the wall for design walls.
One of the members guests began an ambitous quilt using upholstery fabric and velvet.

This was going to be a boy's quilt.

A zillion quilts seemed to appear on the walls during the three days.

Sally Dutka was working on a beautiful consignment wall hanging.

This was the extra little room

This appeared to be one of the slash and burn quilts from Pat Pauly's class.

The leaf quilt progresses. My vest is on the left.

The vest I made from scraps left over from a jacket i made last week.

Still more quilts appearing on the walls.

Almost finished.

Another slash and burn in progress.

There was lots of consultation on this quilt before the leaf border was added.

The chapel. Our classroom was on the ground floor.

Our "hotel". It was the original family home until it was sold to the Retreat.

The house had beautiful living and dining rooms and fabulous verandas. A bit chilly for those unfortunately.

What passed for a waterfall.

The Lakeside Chapel used in the summer.

Another meeting and sleeping building

The cafeteria is being renovated and will eventually serve 400.

The leaves are finished except for the quilting.
