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 - More Delhi Shopping

Just when you can't look at another roll of trim its all over.

You begin seeing some shops selling fabulous saris.

And then the street runs back into Chandi Chowk and the mad traffic of Old Delhi.

Time for a snak in New Delhi after a foray to the Central Cottage Emporium for fabric and handicrafts. There is a wonderful chain of Coffee Shops in India which serves decadant desserts.

And coffee too pretty to stir and drink.

Back to the neighborhood around our hotel for the last afternoon and evening.Oxen pulling carts are familiar scenes in this area.

There is an area where two roads join with a large intersection full of shoppers and stalls.

Dozens of cheap hotels flank this street. Although they aren't all that cheap as Delhi (and all India) attracts more and more tourists including the current 100 million middle class Indians.

Textiles hanging from the side of the building.
