She has exhibited her work with four New England guilds, prior to relocating to Appomattox. Her work has been featured in Handwoven Magazine. She sells her hand-wovens at various local craft fairs and online. Morton loves to spread her passion for weaving. She has introduced numerous adults and children to weaving.
