From the Artist

As Artist in Residence at The Shepherd's Mill, Inc., I love exploring the interlacement of yarns to create fabrics with textures.  Weaving and Bobbin Lace are my God-given passions and combining those with other fiber arts positively makes me sing.  As a mostly self-taught fiber artist, I know the pitfalls and mistakes that happen when our creativity outpaces our experience.  That's why I teach from my hard-learned lessons both virtually and in person.  I love to share a good story and help others to create something personal and unique.  My roots are deep here in Phillipsburg, Kansas as my husband and I are both 5th generation homesteaders living on his family's homestead.  Our building is a former JC Penney store that sits on ground that was once my husband's Great-Great Uncle's Livery Stable.  Weaving and spinning is in my blood as I am blessed to own a linsey-woolsey coverlet that was spun and woven by my Great, Great Grandmothers as a wedding present for their children.  I learned to weave and make lace however as an International 4-H Youth Exchange to Finland in the late 1980's.  That trip changed my life and formed the basis of my artistry.  I look forward to this next journey and to meeting those who become a part of it!  Weaving with Passion--Sally


My favorite part of this business is getting to create custom pieces for highly individual women of distinction.  Do you have an idea you'd like to see created?  Do you see something you like on site but would like some changes?  I'm here for you!
