Priscilla Kibbee

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.

Thanksgiving at my Grandaughter Christine's

Since my daughter Barbara and her husband Michael were still in Florida I was invited to spend Thanksgiving at my granddaughter Christine's new home in Williamson.  Almost ready.
 The children had been busy making place cards for everyone.  They call me Cilla which is easier than Priscilla
 After dinner Dominic, Kaelyn and I played Go Fish and then found time for pie
