I am Manuela Nix
"We weave, draw and embroider."
My name is Manuela Nix, I live in Chichicastenango. I have been an embroiderer for 40 years and I work with different crafts, which I learned as a child with my mother. I can't read or write, but my hands excel at the art of combining colors, fabrics and weaving güipiles and strips.
I work with my two daughters and my husband, and together, we are able to combine our skills to complete an entire product. The task begins with the purchase and preparation of threads to weave the panels on waist looms, then we place the canvases over the frames. Next, we draw with a pencil a variety of figures to make embroideries. Each member of the family has an assigned task: weaving, drawing or embroidery, but we also share the work with other neighbors, mainly when there are large orders.
