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.

Trip to Oaxaca, Part Twelve

A codex from the 1500's or earlier.
Armour during the Spanish era.
And a coat of mail.

In the paintings of the period the size of the subject denoted their status in society.

A cookpot from a convent kitchen.
A priest's vestment.
Typical huipils from the 20th century.

And typical peasant wear from the late 19th and early 20th century.
Local pottery from the early 20th century.
This old saddle didn't look very comfortable.
