This week Kathy talks with Art and Barbara about the founding of WEBS and their early years in Amherst.
Art and Barbara seen here in the Kellogg Ave. location in 1992 just before moving to the 75 Service Center Rd. location.
Barbara reminisces about buying the first 20 looms, WEBS initial location in the family’s basement, our second location at 109 Main St., signing for her first loan and more.
