Fodor's Review

Hosana Eilert, the proprietor of Wild West Weaving learned her craft in Chimayó, with the masters of the Rio Grande weaving style, the Trujillos of Centinela Traditional Arts. Eilert's skills are comparable but her special sense of color and design are hers alone. She uses mostly natural dyes and handspun wool for her work, which may be used either as tapestry or rug. Her small, inviting shop on a Downtown side street also carries a well-edited line of local contemporary artisans' work: Susan Porter/Dancing Threads scarves and shawls, Rita Sherwood's found-art altars, Trina Kaiser's beaded jewelry, and woven goods from La Cooperativa de la Frontera de Palomas y Columbus.
