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.

Amherst Massachusetts Quilt Show

On March 20th and 21st I vended at the wonderful quilt show in Amherst, Mass.
The show is held in the college gym and is always a great show. I loved the use of a huipil in this jacket.

There were a number of wonderful wearables.

The maker had taken a class with Ruth McDowell.

This was a very interesting quilt made in the 40's from neckties.

Jo Swift dropped by to show me here wonderful jacket . She had used some of the "Seminole Trim" I buy in Northern Thailand for the band and cuffs. The jacket was featured in the last quilt show.
