I can help you evaluate your products for the market in the United States and design items using local skills and materials. Working together we can develop a marketing plan that includes expansion while involving everyone in the business success. As a short-term consultant in Peru, Morocco, Nepal, India, Armenia, South Africa, Namibia, Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Tanzania, and Sri Lanka, I bring the understanding of forty years' weaving- and craft-organizing experience. Researching early Appalachian weaving centers for Weavers of the Southern Highlands, University Press of Kentucky, 2003, impressed on me the similarities with crafts production in emerging international countries.
