MEET THE TEAM

Andrew Neave

Design for Andrew has always been a pleasure, inspiration and vocation. From a beginning designing theatre sets and costumes, Andrew moved on to earn honors in both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design in apparel and textile design.

After beginning in the garment industry as a design assistant and model, Andrew worked with historical design merchant Burrows and Company, Steven King Decorative Carpets, the Rug Company and Lapchi Rug Design Studio, as well as several antique and period textile firms.  In his career, Andrew has designed and branded rug, textile and clothing lines, and held positions as a design teacher, showroom manager, product and design consultant and sales associate. A life in design has provided endless interest and challenge for Andrew, where visual problem solving and creative colleagues keep his enthusiasm sharp. When not assisting client’s at Williston Weaves, Andrew is tackling the restoration of an 18th century house in Chepachet RI.

Jayne Zimble

Jayne has helped customers acquire some of the most important purchases of their lives. These range from Real Estate in New York City to high end jewelry at Cartier in Boston.  Her fashion style evolved from a background working with Perry Ellis, Henri Bendel and Bloomingdale’s.

Her love for all things design developed when she changed direction in her career. Her true passion for home design became my new obsession. Jayne has many years of experience working directly with homeowners, architects, contractors and developers to assist them with creating spaces for their various projects.

When not working Jayne loves spending time with her three great nephews and helping friends with their design projects.

Robert Reed

Robert has been in the carpet & rug industry for over 20 years.  He attended college for Interior design then worked for a bit at Joann’s Fabrics.  He then began work at the Boston Design Center where he worked a combined total of 18 years at Stark Carpet and Steven King before joining the Williston Weaves team.   He enjoys helping clients efficiently reach their goals.  He works diligently with the installers, mills and reps to communicate accurately to our clients.  He strives for accuracy in all aspects of communication.  When he is not at work he could be found at the Front Porch in Ogunquit Maine.

Susan Karofsky

Susan is celebrating 22 years at Williston Weaves in 2021!

She started working for Ellen Goldberg the original owner of Williston Weaves. Though never professionally trained, Susan always had a love of design. Ellen was a wonderful teacher, both of sales and how to run a business. Susan eventually bought the business and ran it for 8 years until deciding to sell it to spend more time with her 4 grandchildren. Asked to stay on to oversee a smooth transition, she is still there, “they cant seem to get rid of me, this place is in my blood!”
