Zonnie Gilmore

As the first character introduced in Weaving Worlds at her home in Chinle, Ariz., weaver Zonnie Gilmore shows viewers sheep shearing and takes them to the disappointing results of the first few bids at the Crownpoint rug auction. But while Gilmore owns sheep, she only uses store-bought yarn. She specializes in Sandpainting rugs and began weaving in her early teens.
