About the Author
Sally has been making bears since 1983, first as an individual crafter, then for many years as the central figure in a family-sized cottage industry. She has taught classes, owned shops, and sold fabric, manufactured bears, and worked by fellow artists. A number of Sallys plush animal designs were manufactured several years ago by Ty, Inc. Today she has her own line Winey Bears, delightful & heartwarming mohair artist bears!
