John Andrews: Making Sure No Wool Was Pulled Over His Eyes
Friends of Indian Art

John Andrews, owner of Native Jackets, will speak to us about the development of his business which began on the web in 1998 selling Indian blanket jackets. After meeting Mark Winter of Toadlena Trading Post, he saw that he could trust his eye and started investing more in Navajo rugs, Pueblo pottery, and Native baskets. Now native art sales exceed the jacket sales, and have for several years. John will show us beautiful tapestry weavings made by living master weavers, antique treasures, and Pendleton blankets. Not a FIA member? Join by calling 505-982-6366 ext. 100.
