  • Born in Wisconsin and taught to sew and knit as a child, Sally Shore studied fine art at Kent State University in the late 1960s with a concentration in graphic design.  She took a weaving class during her last quarter before graduation.

    She began working with ribbons after receiving a gift – the book Weaving with Ribbon by Valerie Campbell-Harding – in 1991.  Ms. Shore has experimented with color, value, and texture concentrating on tri-axial weave with its inherent optical illusions.  In April 2008 Ms. Shore self-published A Ribbon Weaver’s Handbook.  She continues to teach ribbon weaving, bead weaving and knitting and eco-printing to guilds and individuals.
