I am traveling to Israel in August. Is there anything, related to fibers, that I should be sure to see while I am there?

Hi Deborah

I am Miri from Israel. I'm trying to think of fibre-related locations in Israel and what just springs to my mind is the Bedouin town of Laqiyah, where you can see their very beautiful rugs being woven and purchase any. It is located in the south of Israel and here are two relevant links:

http://www.bedouinweaving.com/

http://www.angelfire.com/art2/oasisguild/news2_6.html

There is also a village for special needs children who weave, among other things:

You can write to me at miri37@gmail.com and specify what exactly you are interested in and I will try to think of additional locations.

We are heading to Taos and

We are heading to Taos and Santa Fe in September. There are so many places listed in the AAA book it's hard to choose. Does anyone have any suggestions for these two areas.

Thanks to Deborah we found a superb place in Monument Valley. We are going to be in the 4 corners area for 2 weeks and have the trip all set, just 2 reservations needed.

Thanks,
Claudia

Anyone traveling to India may

Anyone traveling to India may want to look at this web site, which I run across and have no connection to. www.handlooms.com

With 3.9 million handlooms, India is the highest handloom producing country in the World. 30% of the total export income is generated by textile alone, it is second largest Employer industry after agriculture. The textile industry constitutes approximately 14% of country's total industrial production.
      Handlooms.com is a vertical portal on Worlds handloom textile industry, dedicated to support and encourage all the weaver artisans.  It will provide necessary support in the areas such as latest trends, colors, fashions, branding, documentation and logistics to facilitate and improve Indian handloom Industry. If you want to contribute your knowledge to uplift and promote this industry please contribute your thoughts here.

Last fall a friend and I

Last fall a friend and I stayed in one of the Earthship houses outside of Taos. They are amazing.! Check it out at www.earthship.net. Click on nightly rentals. They are not cheap, but it is a whole experience in itself.                                           Do you have a copy of the New Mexico Fiber Arts Trails book?  --Annie
