Priscilla Kibbee

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- The Spice Garden

We stopped at a Spice Garden to see an array of spices ready to harvest. This was coffee.
The word lush loses it meaning in Bali. The foliage and trees are huge.

Cocoa.

Cinnamon bark
At the top of the hill was a display of Mongoose Coffee. The mongoose eats the beans, which are not digested but softened in its intestional tract, then excretes them. No thanks.
Then the beans are roasted.
And the coffee is ground.
Roasted beans.
Snakefruit in the right. It was sort of like a hard pear.
