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.
SAQA Conference in Philadelphia, Part 2
This was an intriguing centerpiece at the Wexler Gallery, our first stop.
These cute figures were made out of newspaper.
Back out in the cold it was time for a stop to get warm at the Vine and Fig restaurant. The food looked so good we ate brunch and it was delicious!.
I loved this quilt by Michael James at the next gallery.
Some of the tiles on the bathroom wall.
A costume shop on the route between galleries.
Parts of shirts hanging on a wall in another gallery.
We loved this display of old irons in a laundry window.
