Sandra Sandberg discovered weaving while she was teaching at (then) Dixie College, learning the art from Helen Hafen, who offered a weaving class housed in the old Industrial Arts Building. Since then, Sandberg has shared her love of weaving, cloth, and textiles with the world while teaching at a variety of locations over the years. While working as a Grad Assistant at Michigan State University she personally designed and manufactured a functional weaving loom. This loom, "The Wacousta", can be viewed and and tried out at the St. George Art Museum as a part of the art exhibit Turned, Twisted, Twined.
