Marilyn has been a longtime member of Heritage Weavers and Spinners Guild. She weaves, spins and dyes, but her passion is spinning. All kinds of fibre interest her, but silk and wool are her favrorites. She uses her handspin yarn to weave scarves and blankets. For tea towels and baby blankets she uses commercial cotton yarns.
She enjoys entering her handspun and woven items in the Western Showcase at the Calgary Stampede, Heritage Park Fall Fair and the juried show at the Handweavers, Spinners, and Dyers of Alberta conferences. Marilyn has won many ribbons over the years and her handspun yarn has been shown in Spin Off magazine.
