Sadie Curtis (1930-2012) was one of the greatest weavers of her time. She was from the Kinlichee Ganado area of the Navajo reservation and worked at the Hubbell Trading Post demonstrating weaving for the visitors. Sadie was a versatile weaver and a master of many different styles. Sadie was especially proud of the American flag she wove that was raised over the nation's capitol for the bicentennial in 1976.
For this piece she used the classic red of the Ganado style with the banded geometric designs of the Crystal style. Sadie wove this rug in 1991.
It was always a special day when Sadie came into the shop to sell a rug.
