Open House Thanksgiving Weekend

Staying close to home for Thanksgiving weekend? The Western Folklife Center in downtown Elko is a perfect destination for you, your family and out-of-town guests. The Center is offering a free Open House on Saturday, November 24, to meet award-winning fabric artists featured in its Stitching Art exhibition and to “Shop Local” in the gift shop.

From 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, visitors can view the exhibition, meet local quilters and watch a demonstration on how to make a simple scrap quilt.

From 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, local writer and retired teacher Amy Isaman will be signing her newly published historical novel, The Overlander’s Daughter, and local Paiute/Shoshone photographer Victoria Jackson will be signing her book, Cowboys, Indians, and Indian Cowboys.
