I have returned to Oaxaca just in time for TEXTIM, a conference on Mesoamerican Textiles.  A friend had signed me up for a workshop and conference and we stopped by the museum, Museo Textil de Oaxaca, today to check out the details.  The workshops are all on using feathers.  There was an exhibit  with feathers that we got to look at briefly.  My workshop starts on Wednsday and the conference goes through Sunday.  More to come….

  1. Amazing; I would love to watch this happen from beginning to end and with you by my side. It’s out time in life to enjoy things that we never had time for in our younger years, would sure be nice if we had a beam me up Scottie. ❤
