Le Point Visible
Marilyn was raised by her grandmother and her aunts, all of whom were seamstresses. In their household, every moment could become an excuse to take out the needle and thread. Over the years, home became a place of exploration of materials, textures and colours.
In 2017, after moving to the Eastern Townships, Marilyn met France Verrier, an experienced quilter from the Cercle des Fermières de Cowansville organisation. It was this meeting that sparked Marilyn's passion for the art of quilting. This artisanal method resonated both with her personal history and her values. Today, Marilyn strives to promote this cultural heritage traditionally practised by women in Quebec and to grant greater visibility to this art that has long been overlooked.
