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- Thailand TV

Every evening at either 7:30 or 8:00 pm, depending on the station, there is a review of the events which members of the Royal Family attended. I haven't seen the King or Queen on TV in a couple of years...due to their ill health. The Crown Prince is often seen giving out diplomas at graduations and at other events, often accompanied by his wife and young son. And the second oldest sister, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn who is very popular with the Thai's, is often shown.

This is Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn the youngest daughter.
born in 1957. She has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from Mahidol University, Bangkok where she is currently a professor. She is often shown going overseas and lecturing to various groups.

This is Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya
who was born in 1951, eldest child of the King and Queen. After finishing her education in the United States of America, (an MBA at M.I.T.) she relinquished her royal title to marry an American commoner. She has lived most of her life in the United States with her then husband, Peter Jensen, and their three children,
After her divorce, the princess has moved back to Thailand, and has embarked on many activities for the betterment of the Thai people. One notable project is the "To Be Number One" project which deals directly with the drug problems in the kingdom. She is very interested in the arts and starred in a movie last year. She is very fashionable. She is also just a Princess and not a Royal Highness because of the divorce and giving up the title. Her son died in the Tsunami in Thailand a few years ago.
There is always an entourage and red carpet for the royal.

And usually some sort of entertainment and/or review or a facility or ribbon cutting.
And lots of sitting time looking interested.

The Crown Prince's ex-wife is also on the tour. She is revered as the mother of the King's first grandchild and is also the Queen's niece. And several granddaughters also are frequently seen.
