After 25 years of teaching in the Boston Public Schools, I came to Greece with my husband to create a network to foster education and economic
development in the area. Little did we know that we would be currently in the midst of the worst economic storm that hit Greece, huge unemployment, with dozens of businesses closing daily.
In the midst of this, I wanted to make a difference by tapping the creativity of women who have been economically desperate so that they and their families can secure income
and be able to survive. So, I created the colorfulrugs.net site in order to sell these crafts.
