What's New?




Thanks to my Santa Fe guild, Las Tejedoras Fiber Arts Guild, for sponsoring me to be a guest on the Handweavers' Guild of America series, Textiles & Tea. Catch me on November 15th at 4PM ET. That's 2PM here in the Mountain Time Zone. In case you are not familiar with the video interview series, there have been many wonderful episodes so far! Here's more information from the HGA website:

"Each week the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc. (HGA) hosts Textiles & Tea, a conversation with some of the most respected fiber artists in the field today. In our 45-minute discussion, we focus on their artwork and their creative journey. We allow 15 minutes at the end of our conversation for questions from the audience. Textiles & Tea will take place every Tuesday at 4:00 PM (ET) and is broadcast via Zoom and Facebook Live. These broadcasts are free to view and open to all."

If you want to watch live, you can register in advance here on the HGA website. https://weavespindye.org/textiles-and-tea/  

Following that, it will be posted on HGA's YouTube channel where anyone can watch it at any time. https://www.youtube.com/user/hgaweavespindye/videos 


So many guitar straps! Click on the photo to enlarge it and see the patterns up close. 


 In September and October, I had the pleasure of being a vendor at a couple of excellent local music festivals. (Michael Hearne's Big Barn Dance in Taos and the Albuquerque Folk Festival) It's good to get back out to events! My love of weaving guitar straps leads me to choose music festivals as my top selling venues. The best thing about this is, no matter what else happens, I get to listen to wonderful live music!! AND I meet cool people! 

One of my favorite bands from the BBD is Beat Root Revival, the duo of  Andrea Magee and Ben Jones.  Wow! Do they put on an awesome performance!! They are really rockin' it in this video and you get to see a lot of footage of  one of my guitar straps in action!! https://www.facebook.com/beatrootrevival/videos/245616480606972
 This makes me happy!


My next show will be in Santa Fe at the Scottish Rite Temple on November 18th-20th 2022.



 Hosted by the New Mexico Fiber Arts Center, the Fall Fiber Fiesta is an annual showcase of local fiber artists. This large ballroom in a lovely historic building gets completely filled with fiber art and artists. With over 40 artists, this is New Mexico’s Premier showcase of local, handmade fiber art & supplies! Shop thousands of one-of-a-kind gifts, wearables, art, supplies and more!
