About Understory Studio: Understory Studio is a registered Saori studio teaching Saori weaving and clothing construction as well as sewing. Our passion and focus is on teaching. We carry a full line of Saori looms, accessories, and yarns, some in studio and some by order from Japan.
Sherrie Wilson has worked with fabric and fiber all her life. She has sewn clothing since age 11, began knitting at 5 with the ambitious project of a cover for her father’s VW Bug, and has been spinning and weaving for 6 years. She has studied Saori weaving with three studios in the U.S. and at Saori-no-mori in Izumi City, Japan.
