Weaver's Market is Coming!

The Heard Museum Weaver's Market will be held a little later this year. The event is scheduled for Saturday December 1 from 10am to 4pm. We expect over 50 weaver's from all over the southwest will be here to demonstrate and sell their finished treasures. The day will also include lectures and book signings. The event is free and open to the public.

This year our raffle rug was woven by Jane Hyden (Navajo) who specializes in Pictorial style. She has two rugs in the permanent collection of the Heard Museum.Jane will also be demonstrating at the market.
