Over 75 detailed drawings (many by Carmen G. Espinosa) of traditional colcha embroidery motifs; weaving patterns; a loom and wool winder to scale. Drawings retraced from bulletins distributed to vocational schools in northern N.M., explanatory texts from "New Mexico Colonial Embroidery" (1943), "Weaving Bulletin" (1937), and "Vegetable Dyes Bulletin" (1935). Wroth (author Christian Images in Hispanic N.M.; ed. Hispanic Crafts of the Southwest) traces the State Dept. of Vocational Education crafts programs, surveys "Hispanic New Mexican Weaving and Colcha Embroidery".

"Weavers, embroiderers, and other artists will especially treasure them: " -- New Mexico Magazine

"Wroth..., with the cooperation of Ancient City Press, can only enhance the continuation of these art forms". -- Albuquerque Journal North
