Primrose Adams was born in 1926 in the small village of Masset, which is located on the Northern shores of the Queen Charlotte Islands, off the British Columbia Coast line. Primrose Adams is the grand-daughter of a great weaver, Isabella Edenshaw. Both she and her mother, Florence Edenshaw, learned the art of weaving in their adulthood from Selina Peratrovich, Primrose's mother-in-law. Isabella died the same year Primrose was born.
Primrose was married to Victor Adams and has expanded her weaving skills to become one held in the highest esteem within this field. In 1981, she wove a potlatch hat for Robert Davidson. Primrose Adam’s weaving works can be found both in local and international collections.
