These images are from a group of photos found with a group of recently purchased textiles.

The textiles are from the collection of Sue Goldberg of San Diego. (I also have a couple of her magazines). I was told that she used to go to China every summer to visit the Miao and to learn how to weave and embroider.  Some of her textiles along with her loom went to the Mingei Museum. Got to the Mingei in July and there is a great exhibit on American Carved and Whittled Walking Canes.

Every city has smells of street food that waft in the air. Some of Beijing’s Yams & Mutton.
