Teri Garcia

I am a native New Mexican, living in Los Ojos with my husband, Frank and our two sons, Isaiah & Isaac. In 1992 I was hired as a finisher at Tierra Wools. Two years later, I enrolled in the apprenticeship weaving program, and in 1998 was recognized as a Master Weaver. Although I weave everything from one of a kind rugs to simple table runners, my passion is blanket weaving.

In September 2005, I was awarded the Woman’s Award of Excellence, sponsored by De Colores, an organization devoted to promoting Hispanic Culter in New Mexico. I have had the honor of winning several weaving competitions. Tierra Wools has given me a true appreciation of the art and ability to express my creativity through my weaving.
