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.

Gorgeous Wool Felting- Masha Ginsburg

Take a look at the beautiful wool felting done by Berlin based artist Masha Ginsburg.

http://www.masha-ginsburg.com/mashaginsburg_en/gallery.html




Masha is a one woman show in Berlin. There, she makes wearable art from start to finish. Working with the finest merino wool, Masha makes felt with a secret recipe that leave the traditionally matted fibers fluid and skin friendly. The result: true couture one-of-a-kind pieces that have a following in Japan--not only for their unique texture, but the interesting ancestral, yet modern shapes of her pieces

She also has articles for sale accessible from her web page. Take a look.
