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.

Butterfly Jacket Class with the Weaving Guild

I spent three delightful days last week with the Weaving Guild in Rochester. The first day was a fashion show for the guild, followed by a two day Butterfly jacket class. Almost everyone opted to add some Seminole Patchwork to their jacket.

The Weaving Guild is much more than just weavers. They teach classes on several of the fiber arts at their new location at the Piano Mall in East Rochester. Here a gorgeous jacket begins to take shape from silk and parts of a skirt from Indochina.

A hand embroidered square is going to be part of two vest fronts.

The silk jacket progresses.

Two jacket fronts are finished.

This one uses a mola in the back for its main focus.

A gorgeous hand dye is the focal point for the front of this jacket.

The silk jacket at the end of the day.

And finished a few days later. The back.
