Weaving on the Road Again!


Jennie Slick weaving on the road with her C-Cactusflower Maxi loom!

Clovis, NM This is just a quick post to let you know that Jennie Slick and I are in Clovis, NM getting ready to do a weaving program at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, about 20 miles from here.  We’ll be visiting the Bosque Redondo Memorial at Ft. Sumner this afternoon.  The Navajos were incarcerated at the Bosque Redondo from 1864 to 1868 during period known as the Long Walk.  I’ll post pictures from the Memorial this evening or tomorrow.  We need to get packed up and get down to Portales,  so I’ll close this and get things ready to go into the car.  We brought about 100 rugs for the students to see.

What’s that?  You want see the rug that Jennie’s working on?  Oh, of course!  Hold your loom up please, Jenne!  The rug is for sale for $240 (quick update:  the rug was sold yesterday) and you can contact me if you’re interested in one like it.  If you’d like to see a larger image, just click on the picture.  The rug is 12″x18″.    She started it last Friday.  That’s right, last Friday.   The loom she’s using is the Maxi size loom from C-Cactusflower.com.  It’s a great loom that can go anywhere, and we don’t even get paid to say that!

    Mary, You and Jennie sure live the life! Your visit to Bosque Redondo will be interesting. Although a bit melancholy I imagine. That is a great picture of Jennie with her portable loom and little rug.
    I didn’t have time to tell you earlier that your social dance rug is great. The design looks really intricate. I wonder how you kept track of it especially when you are weaving it sideways. Well, done!
