Jennie Slick, Mark Winter Featured in New York Times Travel Article


Jennie Slick weaves at a class in Window Rock

The travel section of today’s New York Times has an article by Keith Mulvihill which features travel on the Navajo Nation and focuses on weaving, the Crownpoint Rug Auction and interviews with master weaver and Weaving in Beauty instructor Jennie Slick and the Toadlena Trading Post’s Mark Winter.  Keith even tried his hand at  weaving, learning how to warp a loom and weaving a few inches.  The audio slide show that accompanies the article is really wonderful; you’ll enjoy hearing the sound of Jennie’s weaving fork as she’s working.
