Hetty Friedman

Hetty Friedman first learned to weave in 1966 at Buck's Rock arts camp. Since then, she has earned a BA in Fine Arts from Clark University (1974)—studying weaving at the Worcester Crafts Center and painting and drawing at the Worcester Art Museum School; an MFA in Visual Design from Southeastern Massachusetts University (1977); and an MBA from Boston University (1985). Her fine art and functional weavings have been exhibited and sold at craft fairs across the Northeast. For her real job, Hetty manages the Off-Price Sales division at the William Carter Company, manufacturer of fine children's clothes. She also consults for a fair-trade weaving cooperative in Solola, Guatemala and is a member of the Weavers' Guild of Boston. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, their two college aged children and two dogs, Fannie and Cody.

Crafts for a Cause

In 2000, Hetty founded Crafts for a Cause as a way to harness her skills as a weaver to give back to the community through philanthropy. The proceeds from all sales are donated to charity.
