Warp, Reed, Loom, Weft, Weave

Warp, Reed, Loom, Weft. We spent almost three hours today at Tres Estrellas Designs in Taos, New Mexico. Our hosts, Chris and Carla Ferguson, regaled us with stories, anecdotes,wisdom and a wealth of knowledge on Hispanic and Indigenous Textiles of Old Mexico. They also have a large collection of Navajo weavings, including exquisite “Chiefs Blankets” from the 1800’s. There is also an original Edward S. Curtis photo gravure of “Navajo Riders in Canyon de Chelly”. I found a serape that I like very much. I might have to put that next camera on hold. Carla was working on the loom while we spoke. I put the camera into the loom for this image. Here’s Tres Estrellas Design’s Facebook page. If you have a moment please check it out. If you are in Taos and want to step into another world of textiles, visit the gallery at 208-A Ranchitos Rd. Taos, NM 87571.  575-7703262. I recommend it. Thanks for looking. G
