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 India Jan-Feb 2013- Back in Delhi

 Back in New Delhi after a fascinating overnight train trip.  There were three other women in my first class coach and we shared food and talked for hours.  I ended up having to sleep on the top bunk.  Ugh!  Back in New Delhi I stay in the backpacker district called Paharganj, full of old winding streets.
 I took a tour of the area with a guide from Salaam Balaak Trust, an organization which helps the street children in the area.  The guides are all former street children. A vegetable seller in the area.
 The children sell rags and paper they collect to a dealer such as this one.
 A typical array of electric wiring.
 Just an interesting old corner.
This was a real alley way with hotels and houses opening on it.
