Inviting Friends of Oaxaca: Meet the Chavez Family Weavers

Eric Chavez Santiago, director of education at the Museo Textil de Oaxaca (textile museum) and his sister Janet of the Galeria Fe y Lola, will be with us in Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill the week of October 4.    We will be hosting several welcome receptions for them.  They’ll be bringing naturally dyed, hand-woven wool rugs for exhibit and sale,  and will talk about the family tapestry weaving and natural dyeing process.  Both are very knowledgeable professionals, university educated, bi-lingual and have a wealth of information about indigenous textiles throughout the State of Oaxaca.  We hope you can join us.  Please send me an email to RSVP:

Tuesday, October 5, 2010, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Dos Perros– A Mexican Place,  200 N. Mangum St., Downtown Durham.

Join us at Dos Perros to meet Eric and Janet, chat, and see their extraordinary rugs.  We’ll provide the nibbles.  No host bar.  Stay on for dinner if you like.  Call the restaurant to make your dinner reservations (919) 956-2750.  Parking is free in the city lot across the street.  (They make a fabulous Cayenne Mango Margarita.)


Email to RSVP and for directions.

We are also organizing an event for Pittsboro, NC, during that week, so stay tuned for details to come.  Thanks, Norma
