Embroidered stealies

The Grateful Dead Archive recently received a spectacular gift from Dave Yasui of Toronto. He sent us a tie-dyed Steal Your Face panel emblazoned with colorful embroidered patches made in Kathmandu Nepal. Dave is a yearly visitor to Nepal since 1990 but a lifelong Deadhead. We recently sent this piece up for display at the Furthur Festival in Mountain Aire, California (May 28th -30th.) It was part of a special Grateful Dead memorabilia exhibit that included artifacts from the Archive, band members' instruments, and artwork.
