The San Luis Valley Colcha Embroidery Project is a collaboration between HEART of Saguache, The Range in Saguache, Colorado, and artists in the Valley. This project supports exhibitions, workshops, scholarship, and colcha embroidery artists. Colcha embroidery is a textile art that came to the San Luis Valley from Northern New Mexico in the 19th Century and has been shaped by 20th and 21st Century revival movements. Colcha embroidery artworks from the region often illustrate personal histories and local landscapes, capturing complex memories of the Valley. The San Luis Valley Colcha Embroidery Project supports artists to teach and tend to vital community connections, while celebrating the stewardship of cultural traditions.
