Since 1977, for the last 36 years, I have been restoring Navajo rugs out of my Santa Fe studio. When you schedule an appointment with me, we look at your textile/s together or they may be sent to me and I will discuss the information over the phone with you. Although, I'm not an appraiser and do not buy and sell Navajo rugs, I do know the "general ball park" value of the rugs, which lets the client know if the rug is valued enough to warrant repairs or lets them know that the cost of restoration would be considered "sentimental" in value, if they choose to have it restored. The restoration I do is normally not seen, as I hand-card and hand-spin most all the yarns I put into the rug. I also advise on washing, storage and application use for each textile. A 'Rug Report' can be written up which is two full pages describing the textile, in detail, with book references, concerning it's style, age, area where it was woven, condition, thread count, dyes and yarns used as well as the personal history of the rug, as the client informs me, along with a full and detailed photos. Local references are numerous, including the Santa Fe Indian Market and Spanish Market where I have had the honor of being a weaving judge at both events, as well as a judge for the Fiber Arts Festival at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. I speak locally at different venues concerning Navajo rugs and I have taught a Navajo Rug Appreciation class at the Santa Fe Community College.
