Last Sunday, we concluded the Southwest Trader Rendezvous with a highly successful rug auction. The Rendezvous organizer, Frank Lister, had done a good job of publicizing the event among weavers and several were in attendance in Cortez, which really completes an auction. Several rugs were woven by young weavers and the video below shows Devona Salake, daughter of Navajo weaver Pauline Thomas, as she shows her rug at the auction. As you’ll see everyone had fun finding the rug a new home!
We’ll be adding a picture gallery from the Southwest Traders event over the next few days. We had a great weekend with old friends and new!
