Anne Gilmour

I love unusual combinations of color, pattern, texture & fiber- I was born predisposed to possibilities. Working in textiles allows a perfect vehicle to lend form to a constant flow of ideas. That these ideas can live & move on a person and become part of a human life is a special privilege known only to those who invent wearables and to me, is an absolute joy. This is such a remarkable age of possibility- recently, I finished a length of woolen cloth on my computer driven dobby loom, combining centuries old techniques with the latest technology, then took it to a group at a local fiber festival to wet finish with a traditional ‘Waulking’ using ancient Gaelic songs. The hands of many people blessed this cloth, the belief being that this spirit & energy goes on with the finished garments to their eventual owners. This is a kind of old world magic I can believe in, in this age of possibility!
