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 Thailand, Laos, Bali-Chiang Mai Thailand

After Bali it was a flight back to Bangkok, a short wait and then another to Chiang Mai, Thailand. I stayed in a hotel a few blocks from the Tae Pae Gate.
Chiang Mai has restored some of its walls around the old city and this area is the scene of a lively market on Sunday which extends all the way down the street in the distance. My hotel was about three blocks down this street and perhaps half a mile from the famous Night Market.
The busy day market where I do most of my shopping.
But not here in one of the many Gold shops.
In the last few years there seems to be a permanent market of hmong textiles under this tent. But I have never found anything I like here.
