Worked in Wool . . .

Marilyn Willmore, of "Worked In Wool" has had an interest in fabrics, textiles and hand 
crafted items since childhood. 
After retiring from a 22 year career as a realtor she began devoting her 
full attention to re-creating rugs by the centuries old craft of rug hooking.
Marilyn's inspiration comes from many of those early rugs. 
By using fine woolens, many of which she has over dyed she is able to duplicate the 
rich tones and hues found in such early works.
Marilyn is honored to be recognized by "Early American Life" magazine and listed in their
Directory of Traditional American Crafts.
See more of her beautiful rugs and woolen capelets at the show!
