A must-have for every weaving library is Saddle Up! by Mark Winter. This new and exciting publication features Navajo Fancy and Sunday saddle blankets from the 1860’s to 2011, representing six to eight generations of weaving creativity. Included are over 100 color plates and insightful text. Accompanying the book is Saddle Up! Side Kick, a flipbook of the color plates included in the main book. The pair sells for $48 plus shipping.
Most of the saddle blankets in the book are on display at the Toadlena Trading Post Weaving Museum. Come see the exhibition after enjoying the Saddle Up! catalog.
