Rugs Finished, Rugs Begun

Window Rock, AZ Two more of our first October class session students finished their rugs yesterday and our new class completed their loom warping and then went on a field trip to examine the rug styles (and jewelry) at Richardson’s Trading and Perry Null’s Tobe Turpen Trading Post.

First, have a look at the fabulous finished rugs!  Rosemary Morrill, below, completed a difficult outlined diagonal figure and did a great job with it.

Nance Howsman also finished her rug, a great achievement for a first time weaver.  You can see Nance and her new rug posing with Jennie Slick below.

Our group also enjoyed shopping in Gallup yesterday afternoon and you can see us at Perry Null’s below.

Today, we were at the Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site where we enjoyed the rug room and trading post.  We visited with Geno Bahe, Maralyn Yazzie and Tina Lowe.  Tina did a wonderful tour of the Hubbell home for us.  That’s her below with Debi Ward at the conclusion of the tour.

Finally, I hope you’ll enjoy seeing a Pauline Glasses Nightway Pictorial rug that we saw Saturday at Richardson’s Trading Post in Gallup.  The Yei Bi Chei dance season is fully underway here on the Navajo Nation at this time of year.
