Navajo style, handwoven rug.
Fascinated as a child by weaving demonstrations at Plimoth Plantation, Wiillamsburg and Sturbridge Village, as an adult Rosemary pursued her interest in weaving by taking vacations from her publishing job to learn the craft. She learned to weave in Clancy, Montana, attended Parsons School of Design, studied Navajo weaving in New Mexico, took a wide variety of classes at Brookfield Craft Center in Connecticut fiber arts, including basketry as well as weaving, and even went to Banks Island in Canada to work with qiviut (musk ox yarn) and lichen dyeing. She is much inspired by the geometric designs in Navajo weaving and this shows in the patterns she designs for her rugs. Rosemary moved to Cody in 1994 and is now a professional weaver.
