Visits with mundillistas –

I had the opportunity to meet many amazing people when I was involved with field research for my project. I’ll be posting about them over the next few weeks. Some spent time teaching and helping others get through particular stitches, or discussed designs, thread and items they made or sold. 

The first person I interviewed was Isidra Perez Bourdon, who passed away this year at the age of 99. Dona Isidra was born in Moca and moved to Indiana, where she continued making mundillo. She returned to Moca to retire in the 1970s.
