Statement
I knew that I wanted to be a tejedora at an early age. While still in high school, my mother and I went to the Chimayo weaving houses in search of a maestra...In 1972, I was fortunate to be accepted into the Hernandez weaving classes...taught by Dona Agueda Martinez and Ruth Vigil.

Biography
Teresa Archuleta-Sagel was born...in the pristine Espanola Valley of northern New Mexico, where her ancestors had a hand in developing the Rio Grande weaving style. Today, Archuleta-Sagel is one of the most renowned of a new generation of New Mexico weavers working in the Rio Grande style, creating traditional designs from hand-dyed yarns.
