About the Artist
Hillary Hutton began a self-employed weaving venture in 1980; her first weavings were yardages for clothing. Hillary’s background was in fashion and costume design and she began with a line of clothing that she sold to boutiques and children’s shops.
After ten years of weaving and sewing clothing, Hillary discovered rug weaving. In 1990 she began weaving rugs seriously and started showing them at craft shows. Over the past 15 years she has perfected the technique and is focused on improving her skill with each rug she weaves.
