The first "official" event for the rug show is a training opportunity for volunteers to learn more about Navajo weaving so they will be better prepared to help visitors at the show. This was held last night at the warehouse. John Burrow has generously flown in from Portland to conduct this training for many years. It a great chance for volunteers to not only learn more about weaving but to see a few of the rugs that will be offered for sale at the show.
Food is served, and it's a potluck affair with pizza "on the house".
This was the most unique rug of the evening for me, a Yei Tree of Life by Winona Joe:
The show starts Friday evening, November 2nd, and runs through Sunday evening. Check out the schedule of events here.
