Weaving

 

Sally enjoys weaving in her studio at the Brown County Weavery. She creates rugs using rags and waste from textile manufacture and scarves, shawls, ponchos, wraps and ruanas out of natural and synthetic yarns.
While growing up in Evansville, she wove looper potholders and peddled them in her neighborhood. Later, while living in Minnesota, with the intention of being close to nature, she attended a weaving class at St. Paul YWCA and was inspired to have weaving be a part of her life. In 1980, she attended Southern Illinois University and studied Botany and Outdoor Education and in 1991 continued studies at Indiana University in Latin American History and Political Science.

With this knowledge, she has pursued natural dyeing of wool, organic cotton yarns using plants that grow in Brown  County.
