This Shirley Combs Ye'i will be one of the first rugs in the Smoki Museum auction this weekend. It is is 30"x40".

Our opening auction for 2011 in Tucson was a great success with over $70,000 in sales.  We were so busy that we didn’t have a chance to take a single picture!  Thank you, Tucson for a great first year in this venue.

Continuing with our Winter auctions, we are getting the rugs together for next weekend’s Smoki Museum Winter Navajo Rug Auction and the Shirley Combs Yei Bi Chei  rug above will be one of the first rugs you’ll see on Saturday.   The auction preview runs from 10 AM until noon and the auction will start at 1 PM.   The auction will feature over 250 vintage and contemporary textiles.  The pictures below are from last year and we’re excited to see the rugs coming in for this year’s event.

If you are a weaver with a rug to consign, please contact Sheri Burnham by email or at (928) 688-2777.
