It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Keshmish (Christmas)

Jennie Slick Weaves in Window Rock December 2010

Jennie Slick works on a student loom at our December local class in Window Rock.

Window Rock, AZ It’s our last local class in Window Rock for 2010.  One of our students is working on the last half inch of her rug and should be done by the time we quit at 9.  Our next class will be on Thursday, January 13th, 2011 at the Quality Inn in Window Rock.  We’re going to be doing some advertising, so please contact me if you plan to attend so that I can make sure that we have enough equipment and instructors to help you.  The first session is $15 and subsequent classes are $10.   Everyone is welcome regardless of age, gender, tribal affiliation or lack thereof.  Come and learn to weave in 2011.

Herman and Lula Brown stopped by before class to drop off some new miniatures that will be going into the Weaving in Beauty Mercantile.  Their daughters Sandra and Chantelle were with them and we had a nice visit.  Lula’s outdone herself again with a 3.5″x3.75″ miniature with five trees of life and twenty four birds.  At $140 that’s less than $6 per bird.  You can see a close-up of it below.  It will be in Lula’s section of the Mercantile soon, but you can click here if you can’t wait.

Here’s a look at the other pictures from the evening.  Tomorrow, I’ll be at the Crownpoint Rug Auction and Saturday, I’m coordinating a gallery walk in Scottsdale.  I’ll be writing quite a bit in the next few days so I won’t wear out my welcome any further right now!

    When you see them holding them, it really shows you how small they are. There was one Chief Blanket miniature that I was looking a under a microscope and realized that it had a brown stripe in it that I couldn’t even see.

    I was impressed before I realized how tiny these miniatures are. Incredible. Simply incredible.
