2010 Weaving in Beauty Calendar is Ready

The 2010 calendar is ready for your inspection!  By collaging the pictures in several of the months, I’ve included many more photographs than I’ve been able to show in previous versions, which is a darn good thing since I was only down to 78 pictures when I got done selecting the ones I wanted. The calendar is available immediately from lulu.com if you can’t wait, but I you can also pre-order directly from Weaving in Beauty.  Pre-ordered calendars will be shipped after October 15.

Many thanks go to the weavers, traders and students whose work and places of business are featured.   Weavers Lynda Teller Pete, Jennie Slick, Shirley Brown, Rose Dedman, Kathy Strathearn and the Spider Rock Girls (Emily and Alyssa Malone, Rose Yazzie and Lavera, Laramie and Lariisa Blake) are featured.  Work by Gloria Begay of Crownpoint, NM and Pauline Glasses of Pinon, AZ was photographed at Richardson Trading in Gallup, NM.  Multiple photographs were taken at Toadlena Trading Post.   The Ye’i rugs were photographed at auctions run by R.B. Burnham and Co. Thanks also to Two Grey Hills Trading Post for the beautiful background seen in Shirley Brown’s picture.

Sales of the calendar help to support the operating costs for the reporting and reference aspects of Weaving in Beauty.  I really love putting the calendar together, and although it’s difficult to select the pictures from the several thousand that I take each year, as I’m doing it I realize how very privileged I am to be a part of this community of hózhó dóó nizhóní (harmony and beauty).

A preview of the calendar appears below.  You can click on any picture for a more detailed view.

    adding more, I forgot to tell you I did go to Boulder to see the show that Morris was in. It was a good show. I enjoy more of what you show us on our tours.

    Mary, Just checking in to see about the spider rock workshop. I’m still interested in co-sponsoring and supporting the spider rock girls. Love to be working with you, if you think that is good for all. Let me know, I’ve got a schedule in Oct. the first weekend in Seattle. And fall equinox is always booked for me. I too would love to come weave again if Spider Rock doesn’t go. O.k. Let’s talk when you can. YOu’ve been busy I see. I am getting better with my e-mail.tee-hee. things have been good and busy and I’m well in my health. Take care, Thank you for being. Trudy Welty
