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.

Indian Train Travel Tales- The Old Lady Stole My Bed

When I travel AC2 on Indian trains I like to reserve very early and obtain the lower end seat which folds down into a bed at night and has a privacy curtain. There is a bunk above it and four bunks beside it, only separated from the hallway by one set of privacy curtains, not individual ones. So on this trip from Ahmedabad to Jodhpur I entered the coach only to find a little old Indian lady already making herself comfy in my bed. I showed her my ticket and she explained that she was old and needed that spot. I showed her my age which is printed on one's ticket but she was having none of it. She...had a four point quad cane and shoo...d me away. End of my nice bunk. So....... I had to settle for a bunk along the wall.
