“My favorite designs are Teec Nos Pos. I really enjoy my work. It is like a therapy for me when things are bad, weaving for me is like taking a walk in the mountains. When I take a walk in the mountains I see the birds and waterfalls and such which makes me feel better. As I weave and chose colors to work them into my design, that reminds me of nature. Weaving reminds me of good things. I like to watch the colors grow in my weaving as I would watch the water flow in a waterfall.” said Linda.

“When I was a little girl, I would stay with Grandma Angeline sometimes and she taught me how to weave. It wasn’t until I after my daughter Ava was born in 1990, that I started to weave an entire rug on my own and would be able to earn a living form it.” said Linda.
