If you are in Oaxaca on February 4, 2012, don’t miss this spectacular sale of collectible textiles. Several well-known Norteñas who have lived in Oaxaca for many years are downsizing and editing their collections, including Mary Jane Gagnier who is a book author and formerly married to weaver Arnulfo Mendoza. If I wasn’t going to Chiapas this week, I’d be there in a heartbeat. I suspect there will be huipiles woven on blackstrap looms with the designs integrated into the weft. Some will be embellished with needlepoint. There will likely be shawls, scartable perhaps table linens. Enjoy.
