The article is about the artwork and weaving techniques of Charlene Marsh. She specializes in wall hangings that are made similarly to hooked rugs. She uses an electric tufting needle that allows her to be spontaneous and active while creating her tapestries. She dyes her yarn and keeps close track of the exact formulas she uses in her dyes. Her needle is always set at the same height and she never shears off her loops. She has numerous pets, and most of her projects relate to animals or animal rights.
