Registration for Convergence 2010 in Albuquerque, New Mexico has just opened up today and you’ll find Jennie Slick and I will be doing three seminars and a two-day workshop. Our schedule and the class numbers are below.

Thursday, July 22, 2010 (1:00-4:00) SS206 Navajo Warping and Weaving Demonstration:  Jennie do will a complete small warping and demonstrate weaving.  This will be a nice refresher or introduction for those interested in Navajo techniques.

Friday, July 23, 2010 (1:00-2:30) S409 Navajo Rug Reunion: Think you’ve got a national treasure like the First Phase Chief Blanket on the Antiques Road Show?  Bring it to the rug reunion and find out!  I’ll do a brief description and give you a high level appraisal

Saturday, July24, 2010 and Sunday, July 25, 2010 (9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00) WB219 Navajo Weaving Boot Camp The fastest and most intense Navajo weaving class west of the Pecos.

We’re very pleased to be included in the Convergence schedule and we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. If you have any questions about any of the sessions, please contact me and I’ll try to answer them for you or I’ll find someone who can.  I’ve had questions from a couple of people regarding what process we would use to select the students and my answer to that is that if it’s up to us, it’s carbon based life forms on a first come, first warped basis!

See you in Albuquerque!

    Wow, Mary, you will not get any breathing space before the textile tour starts on Monday! But Convergence is always so exciting and such a high to see so many enthusiastic weavers from all four compass points in one place at one time, you and Jenny will be energized. Make sure you are cashed up for the vendors displays!
