Tabor Shiles

Tabor grew up in the Philadelphia area, spending her summers sailing Sunfish, Lasers, and 420s on the Jersey shore. She traveled south to Georgia where she earned a degree in printmaking and textiles at SCAD. She spent 7 years in Chicago with her own practice, teaching surface design and textile classes. After living for a year on Beneteau First 29, she decided that she wanted to further immerse herself in the sailing world. She came to Oakcliff and quickly transitioned from sewing textiles to sewing sails. As Sail Loft Manager, she can repair and resize nearly every sail, including some of Marlow’s toys.
