Meet the Teacher: Kathy Perito

After 30 years of working in various engineering and management positions, Kathy moved to Mississippi and discovered a passion for weaving here at the Craft Center.  Weaving gives her the opportunity to apply engineering principles to create textiles and goods for specific functions.  Kathy’s goal in every weaving project is to ensure the weave structures and fibers selected deliver the expected results.  She says, “It is so rewarding to take a few bobbins of yarn and watch a cloth appear as those threads interlace.  And best of all, there is always more to learn, try, and share.”
