Community Connection

Today’s interview is with Kathryn Willet, owner of Marble Mountain Textiles. Naturally, I could not resist my fabric buying impulses by the end of the interview. Kathryn has made a lovely craft area in her home and she makes wonderful hand-made items for sale. Che’usa and I had a peaceful and inspiring time with Kathryn in her creative, tranquil environment.
