Olivia Valdez

I have lived in Ensenada, New Mexico with my husband, George, for the majority of my life, where we raised 3 wonderful children. We now have 6 grandchildren, and 5 GREAT grandchildren.

I began working at Tierra Wools as a part time shopkeeper in August 2002. I have since taken one spinning and two weaving classes. Although shopkeeping is my primary job, I do weave and spin as much as time allows. Tierra Wools has been a good place for me. I call it “my sanity”.
