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.

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.

Marcia Smith

Marcia started off her career in the design world working at the venerable luxury clothing store Louis, Boston where she honed her skills in sales, visual merchandising.  After working in visual merchandising for various clothing retailers, she then worked as a project manager for two award winning Boston interior design firms.  With over 20 years of experience in the design industry, Marcia loves all aspects of the design process and brings her knowledge of textiles, color, and scale to the Williston Weaves team.  A fan of Instagram, Marcia enjoys working with Andrew to keep the Williston Weaves IG page fresh and exciting.  A lover of art, design, music and flowers and summertime, she is happiest anywhere near the ocean.

Susan Karofsky

Susan is celebrating 23 years at Williston Weaves in 2022!

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!”
