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.

The Textile Blog ---Take a Look!

The Textile Blog

I discovered this blog a few days ago and it is very addictive. I could have spent the entire morning pouring through its older articles. It's like having a wonderful huge edition of Piecework Magazine on your computer. The current article is a review of the work by Gerrie Congdon as illustrated in the above piece.

The blog concentrates on the history of textiles, but does include contemporary work. Among the subjects covered are printed, woven and knitted textiles, as well as carpet, rug, tapestry, quilting, embroidery, lace and basketry design. It also includes a culturally diverse approach to the history of textile design across the globe.
