Anne Carroll Gilmour
Wild West Woolies Fiber Art
Anne has been fascinated with color & fiber from her first memories. She grew up in Colonial Williamsburg, a living history community in Virginia & was introduced to traditional textile methods of spinning & weaving by well-known Scottish Master Weaver Norman Kennedy who was a resident artisan there at the time.
Anne began knitting at the age of 8 (working in original designs even then) & has never looked back. Extensive work in traditional Scottish Tartan Weaving has helped hone her skills and develop her noted eye for proportion & color harmony in garment design.
She has worked in fiber full time for over 2 decades & has also become a master soap maker. She enjoys working from her sheep farm/studio near the beautiful Columbia River in Washington.
