A Brick and Mortar Store: Weaving in Beauty’s New Chapter
9/4/2017 by Mary Walker
Gallup, NM I am so pleased to announce that Weaving in Beauty is opening a brick and mortar store at 233 W. Coal Ave in Gallup, New Mexico. We are next door to Bill Malone Trading, across the street from City Electric Shoes (and leather shop) and one block south of Richardson’s Trading. We are in the heart of the Gallup Business Improvement District and the Gallup MainStreet Arts and Cultural District.
A Complete Source for Weavers Who Use Navajo Techniques
You can purchase all of our looms, tools and yarns here at the store and we’ll be adding them online as we go forward. Shipping is prohibitive on some of our Navajo style looms, but they are available for local pick up. Our custom dyed yarns are available and we’ll be adding new weaving yarns soon.
Our textile appraisal, cleaning and repairs will also be moving to Gallup.
Our location has plenty of class space and we will be adding weekly classes in knitting, spinning, and weaving. Our first student (from New Zealand!) will be here tomorrow, September 5th. Yes, you can arrange class time with our instructors or sign up for a class. I’ll be working on our class schedule over the next couple of weeks. If there is a class that you’d particularly like to see, please contact me.
Equipment and Supplies for Weavers, Knitters, and Spinners
We plan to carry yarns from Burnham’s Trading Post, Kraemer Textiles, Madelinetosh, Malabrigro, and Jagger Spun. We’ll add yarns as we learn what our customers want and as we find them in this beautiful area. Soon, you’ll find equipment from Schacht, Ashford, Knitter’s Pride and KA.
Come and Visit our Brick and Mortar Store!
We have an area where you can sit and weave, knit, or spin. We will initially be open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9-6. We’ll be open on Sundays from 11-5. I’m moving to Gallup from Phoenix and will be involved in moving chores Monday-Wednesday for awhile. If you need something on a day that we’re not open, just let us know and we’ll make sure that someone is here to help you.
We are open Tuesday-Sunday this week and we’ll be here until 9 PM on Saturday, September 10 for our Social Weaving Group and the monthly Gallup ArtsCrawl.
We’re moving in, but the door is open and there are two great coffee places down the street. Come see us! That “CLOSED” sign will say “OPEN”!
Hagoshíí (so long for now)
