Dona Enriqueta Mexico City

Dona Enriqueta Cenobio Calixto and her late husband Don Juvenal Bernardino have created some of Mexico's most delicate and beautiful embroideries. They specialize in the miniature embroideries of San Felipe Santiago, their home town in the state of Mexico. I had the good fortune to meet Dona Enriqueta three days ago in Mexico City and was sad to learn that her husband has passed away. Mexico has lost one of its cultural treasures.
