Two Beautiful Blankets based on the Durango Collection

Many of you who follow our newsletter are aware that we are in Durango, Colorado, the home of Fort Lewis College and the Center of Southwest Studies.

The Center is the home of the Durango Collection, representing 800 years of weaving in the Southwest. It was put together by Mark Winter and Jackson Clark Sr. The living collection, which is constantly being added to, was donated to the Center by Richard and Mary Lynn Ballantine of Durango.
