Shannon has always had a love of fiber. At a young age, she drew comfort from an old wool blanket that accompanied her until it wore down to nothing . She started weaving about 20 years ago, and through time and friends discovered the joy of spinning and dyeing. Shannon has been an active member of Lake Saskatoon Guild (Grande Prairie area), Peace Country Spinners and Weavers and, since moving to Edmonton, the Edmonton Weavers' Guild. She has a special interest in natural plant based dyes that are locally sourced and is keen to share her passions.
