Nicky grew up in Albuquerque, surrounded by art and influenced by her mom, who was a curator at the Museum of International Folk Art.
Her Albuquerque and New Mexico dish towels are a staple in my store. They are 100% cotton flour sack towels, super absorbent and printed with her rich designs celebrating New Mexico (complete with a roadrunner). Hanging one in your kitchen is like having a small watercolor painting to admire.
Her beautifully designed notecards feature a bandanna-wearing pig and bluebell necklace wearing cow with a flower above her ear, just to name two. With soft rose-gold glitter accents to add a bit of sparkle, they are perfect with or as a gift. They are beyond sweet.
What you need right now is one of her originally designed bandannas, two of which are named for Dixon and Glorietta, New Mexico. Each one comes with a card for 100 ways to tie them, but the one that matters right now is how to fold and tie as a face mask.
These are not meant to replace a medical or surgical face mask, but instead to give you some peace of mind while providing several layers of cotton to cover your nose and mouth for an outing to the grocery store.
Nicky has been delivering fabric cut-outs to friends who are making mask covers for healthcare workers - the new “Rosies”, local crafters sewing away to protect our local community.
