Joy at Aljoya

An amazing show of textiles from around the world is on display now at Aljoya Senior Living – 450 NE 100th St., Seattle. I am rushing to post this blog before I leave town because the show is up until May 28th.  Seattle people can still see it.

The show includes works from the personal collection of Leslie Grace, who used to have the shop La Tienda, in Seattle.

Here are the beautiful textiles on display, with some close ups. You will have to see the show to read the tags! Otherwise just bask in the beauty of these joyful fabrics at Aljoya.

Museo Textil de Oaxaca

Recently a friend and I went on a short trip to Oaxaca. Aaah-Oaxaca.

There were two exhibits at the Museo Textil de Oaxaca that I would like to share with you.

Upstairs you could see Embroidery in the High Lands – Mazahua Textile Art.

 

This long cloth was beautiful in its spaciousness, and exquisite details.

Here are close ups:

Downstairs at the Museo was an exhibit of clothing from Mexico and Guatemala.


I hope you enjoyed visiting the museum. Here are a few photos from the street.

For more on Oaxaca, here is a link to a post that I wrote last year.

Good bye for now. Hasta la próxima.
