Kickstarter Backer Feature: Jeanette Eberhardy

 

A very wise customer suggested we share some of the reasons why a variety of the folks that have pledged to back our Kickstarter campaign made that choice. As if it wasn't enough to get all weepy each time someone new makes a contribution, the answers we've received today to our request have been kind and thoughtful just like each of you. The wise customer was this woman, Jeanette Eberhardy. When Jeanette is out of town teaching or helping her family, we all miss her. Having her cutting and stitching, getting knitting advice, and problem-solving with her is a highlight of our week. We chose not to edit or reformat Jeanette's answers, the following read like poetry. You can find Jeanette crafting stories for today’s meaningful work at WivInc.com
