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.

Ricky Tims Seminar Rochester - The End

 The store had a system where shoppers each received a bag with their name on it for their purchases which they could keep adding to during the festival.
Jenna Darlak, one of our super volunteers and Treasurer of the Genesee Valley Club, brought in one of the unfinished jackets she made in my class using one of the quilted saris I purchase in India.
