In the mid-1980s, after an already lengthy and successful career in the Southwest textile field, Mark Winter began researching and collecting Navajo Two Grey Hills textiles. In 1997, his interest led to his acquiring the lease on the Historic Toadlena Trading Post located in the very popular weaving region. Along with his wife, Linda, he published a now out-of-print 600-page book on the weavers of the region. Purchasing over 8,000 rugs from the Toadlena/Two Grey Hills weavers has given him invaluable insight that he will share, along with examples of the weavers’ work.
