History of WEBS – Kathy and Steve talk about how WEBS started as a loom rental business in 1974. Barbara and her business partner Donna also taught weaving in Barbara’s basement. As time went on they added other looms, spinning wheels, and a little bit of yarn. One loom was even displayed on the back porch! By the end of the 1970s, Donna left the business and the first store came into existence. The story continues next week!

Next Week you’ll find out more about one of the shops in the I-91 Shop Hop, plus KAL with Kirsten, and more of the History of WEBS!
