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.

Hand Eye Magazine - Take a Look!

Recently I learned about a new online magazine--Hand/Eye--that looked promising. Their mission statement begins:

"HAND/EYE is an independent, international publication which explores the nexus between design and development, culture and commerce, art and craft, and environment and ethics.

HAND/EYE’s goal is to engender intelligent debate among artisans, exporters, designers, artists, wholesalers and importers, retailers, and consumers so that all may make smart, ethical, and inspired decisions about their activities."

Its free online and you can also sign up there for updates. You can also subscribe to the printed version if you wish.
There's a bit of everything here. Travelogues, great shopping sources. And interesting articles on everything from using organic cotton waste in India to create gorgeous clothing or dyeing indigo fabric in Mali. Check it out.
