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 Guatemala Part Two, Chichicastenango Market

Thursday and Sunday are Market Day in Chichicastenango. There are always flower sellers and a flurry of activity in front of the main church on the square.





There was also a Mayan ceremony in the church. No photos allowed of course.


Restaurant inside the market. The market wasn't as crowded today. There were fewer tourists around.
On the way back to Panajachel we stopped for some photos of Lake Atitlan at the overlook.




Back in Panajachel a crowd was gathering in front of my hotel for a parade. The view across the street.
And food vendors were setting up of course.
