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 India & Nepal - Jodhpur Part 8 - More Bishnoi

A man made lake near the village. Lots of birds here in season.
The bishnoi currently have a lawsuit against a Bollywood star who shot one of the local animals.

The potters village.
There is always a demo before they try to sell you something.

A bit of shopping time before the next demo.
Wood cart complete with camel.
The final stop was the home of a weaver where we were served lunch.

The bread for our lunch is resting before one of the dung fed stoves.
The chimney of sorts. Actually the lunch was delicious.
The family is developing a group of huts for tourists to stay overnight.

Then the demo of course. In this case the weaving demonstrated is not even similar to the rugs on offer which looked imported. I bought a rug from one of these weavers a few years ago on another trip and it fell apart after a couple of washings.

A beautiful door.
