June 15th Maya weaving sale/June 22nd Textile Fair at the Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum

June 11, 2019

WEAVING for JUSTICE welcomes you to stop by our 3rd Saturday of the month sale in Las Cruces — June 15th, 10 am – 4 pm. — of textiles woven by Maya women in cooperatives in Chiapas, Mexico.  Our store is located at 525 E. Lohman (upstairs in Suite C), between Mesquite and Tornillo Streets.  Just look for our sandwhich board with balloons by the street. All proceeds from sales go back to the weavers in Chiapas.

SATURDAY June 22nd, 10 am – 4 pm Weaving for Justice will exhibit (but not sell!) textiles and information about Maya weaving at the 1st ANNUAL FIBER ARTS FIESTA at THE FARM & RANCH HERITAGE MUSEUM, Las Cruces. This event includes demonstrations of spinning, knitting, quilting, colcha embroidery, tatting, bobbin lacing, and several types of weaving.  The documentary video, “Colcha Circle: A Stitch in Northern New Mexico Culture,” will be shown in the Museum’s theater as well as informational talks. The day also includes food trucks, and a craft activity for children from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Come enjoy seeing and learning about the beautiful creations that are produced locally (and in Chiapas!) by fiber artists. All events this day are FREE.

If you are unable to come to the Weaving for Justice 3rd Saturday of the month sales, we can arrange to take you to our store at a time that works for you. Please contact Christine Eber at 575 621-5999 or ceber@nmsu.edu to arrange that. A small selection of the items from the weavers are also available at the following stores in Las Cruces:  Becks Roasting House and Creamery, Mountain View Market Co-op, Mesilla Book Center, The Southwest Environmental Center Eco Store, and Wisdom Through the Pages (Inside the Center for Spiritual Living). You can also find items in El Paso at Literarity Book Shop and in Phoenix at Palabras Bilingual Bookstore. More info at weaving-for-justice.org.
