It is a unique event...an amazing collection of some of the best folk art and crafts in the world. And we were there, exhibiting for the third time, and even with the sluggish economy, the crowds were huge! Teofila Servin (see photo) who embroiders scenes of life around Lake Patzcuaro and demonstrated in our booth, was thrilled with the entire event. Not only did she sell a lot of her work and that of the cooperative of women she represents, but she had the opportunity to meet and make friends with fellow artists from all over the planet.
The hammered copper by Roberto Castro Hernandez from Santa Clara del Cobre (below) was a big hit as well...we were sold out before noon on the second day. But we are buying more, which will be available for sale on our e-store at www.mexicobyhand.com.
