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.
A Typical Mayan Kitchen in Guatemala
Probably the only unusual thing about this kitchen in the Guatemalan Highlands is that it is inside. Many that I have seen are just an open area with perhaps a fence and an attempt at a partial roof.
Of course there is no such thing as a refrigerator, or electricity, or even a real stove. If families are lucky they have a propane stove. From the soot on the walls it looks like this family cooked over an open fire.
