Early 2017 and I’m off to Mexico in a few days…so looking forward to being back in the color and friendly chaos of the ‘pais mas amable’ in North America! As you probably know from my last few posts – the “Textile Fiestas of Mexico…a traveler guide” was published Fall 2016 by THRUMS and has been selling briskly ever since. THANKS to all my fans who have given multiple copies to family, Mexico aficionado and textile friends for Christmas!! You rocked my sales. Amazon is on it, as well as direct sales from my www.etsy.com/shop/living textiles.
My first book presentation will be in San Miguel Allende on Jan.20th 6-8pm – hosted by Patrice Wynne and Abrazos Shop on Zacateros 24. Get a copy of the book a Abrazos Shop and you’ll get in free to the private event at Patrice’s lovely home. You can attend w/o purchase for a small fee. Here’s more info on the presentation:
Learn about Mexican textiles from textile aficionado and author, Sheri Brautigam,”Textiles Fiestas of Mexico: A Traveler’s Guide to Celebrations, Markets, and Smart Shopping.” Sheri will be giving a special slide lecture geared to independent travelers, guiding the reader to the textile regional markets and artisan events in the states of Oaxaca, Mexico, Chiapas, and Puebla.
Second book presentation will be at the Oaxaca Lending Library Pino Suarez 519, Oaxaca – Jan. 30th at 5pm. Hope my Oaxacan friends can attend, as it will be great to see you all. Some copies of the book will be available for sale, a % of sales go the library.
VIVA las FIESTAS y mercados of Mexico and finding beautiful traditional textiles, which is what the book is all about!!
