    I have admiration for Kathleen Kannik, owner of the historical pattern company ‘Kannik’s Korner’. What it takes to run a business in today’s economy plus family, etc., would make anyone stressed. I have used her patterns for years while re-enacting. Her dedication to authenticity and her instructions make her patterns the best out there. Thank you Kathleen for all your hard work.

  2. Lorita says:

    One of my favorite woman-run business is La Mariposa Cafe in Magnolia, Ms. Mercedes Ricks, an immigrant from Columbia became a U.S. citizen, and lived in New Orleans until Hurricane Katrina made her pack a change of clothes and flee to our little town of Magnolia, Ms. with friends. After the flooding, there was nothing to go back to. She lost her car, home,and job. She went to work, took a carpentry course, bought a rent-to-own building and remodeled it, and opened a little cafe. Everything is made fresh. In the 11 years since, she paid off her building, equipment, and bought a car and a house. And through it all she never stopped smiling. Now she’s also the Alderman-At-Large, and has the best little place for miles around.

    My newest favorite is Figs and Pigs, an eatery in Worcester MASS, owned and operated by Candace Murphy. From the website, ” With a passion for honest food and cooking from what she calls “the ground up,” Murphy has experimented with cooking methods in her own kitchen at home, including dry-curing meats, and has invested countless hours creating recipes made with fresh seasonal ingredients. “After nearly 20 years working as an executive in corporate America, I was inspired by our nation’s troubled relationship with food,” said Murphy. “With a simplistic seasonal approach, I believe in the healing effect of food on the mind and soul. Using only the freshest ingredients possible, made from scratch with care, the offerings I intend to share will contribute to living, eating, and being well.” Enjoy!!
