Shop at this special Labor Day folk art sale and support SHINE’s cause!  
SHINE volunteers in New Mexico are holding a fundraiser at the Museum of International Folk Art to benefit flood-ravaged Ralli-quilt-maker villages in Pakistan. One hundred percent of all sales of Pakistan-made folk art and Ralli quilts will go to support artisan families who have been victim to last month’s floods.


There will be something for everyone’s taste and pocketbook, including jewelry, 
hand-woven textiles, beaded bags, lacquerware, ceramics and the famous Ralliquilts.

Start the weekend off on Friday Night, September 2, at a wine, cheese and buying reception in the Folk Art Museum’s auditorium on Museum Hill from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The sale continues on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 3-5, from 10am – 4pm each day. There is free entry to attend the reception or sale in the Museum’s auditorium.
