Lupe Valdez

I was born and raised here in Los Ojos. I moved away when I got married, and stayed home to raise 5 children. My husband and I moved back to Los Ojos in 1996.

I started working at Tierra Wools as a finisher in 1996. Finishing the rugs wasn’t enough for me. I felt a need to learn to weave and so I took a Beginning Weaving class. I enjoy weaving very much, and now I also do natural dyeing at Tierra Wools.
