Exhibit of Embroidery Work

Teófila Servín of Santa Cruz

On Wednesday, May 19 there will be an exhibit and contest of the well-known embroidery work of Santa Cruz. Prizes are awarded at 2:00 PM and then the items entered in the contest can be purchased. I am told that things sell quickly and the exhibit is not open long after the awards. It is suggested that one get there early, by 1:30. From Patzcuaro, take the road to Tzintzuntzan. At Sanabria turn right to Santa Cruz. The exhibit should be near or at the church. If you have questions, go to the Santa Cruz embroidery shop that is just a few doors South from the Plaza Grande on Dr. Coss, on the left hand side.

Patzcuaro is great.

Ah! Who knew? Alas, we will be on the beach that day. I collect those things, frame them, and hang them on my bedroom wall. Have quite a few.

I particularly like Teófila´s pre-Hispanic motifs.
