Emily is noted for her weaving mastery and her Burntwater palette of vegetally dyed yarns. This is instantly recognizable as Emily’s weaving not only because of her palette and style but also because of her hallmark, a large feather which appears in the upper left hand corner of the rug, just outside the picture at left. Emily has used yarns vegetally dyed by Marie Begay.
Emily is a full time weaver who has taught all of her daughters how to weave. She is a member of the famous weaving family known as the Spider Rock Girls and she is financing her education with her weaving.
