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.

Off to Vietnam, Thailand and Laos

My bags are packed, I'm ready to go. After a long...............series of flights and an overnight in the Bangkok Airport (I only have a six hour break between flights) I head for Hanoi, Vietnam, one of my favorite cities in Asia.

Air Asia has really inexpensive flights. And sometimes they even give away tickets if you can plan a year in advance. No such luck this trip.

After a day to recover at my hotel its off to Sapa, high in the mountains near the border of China.The Pumpkin Coach is part of a longer train and named for the Travel Agency which sells the seats.

It looks comfy but I hope they get rid of the flowers.

When the train arrives at 7 am there is an hour drive up the mountains to the village.

The area is famous for its treking and ethnic villages.

Market Day.
