Handcracted weaven dreams from Tami Longaberger

Tami Longaberger is CEO of The Longaberger Company, the premier U.S. manufacturer of handcrafted baskets and other home and lifestyle products. With great tenderness, transparency, and candor, this book opens her heart, offering readers a glimpse of her unique “American Dream”—the kind not handed down or given freely—but earned by hard work and fierce tenacity.

Whether sharing memories of her impoverished childhood in Appalachia or accounts of reaching out to business women of the Middle East, Longaberger evokes a balanced nostalgia for the sweetness of the past comingled with a passionate call for hope for the future.

A reader´s review: Just finished Weaving Dreams; I laughed, I cried, I dreamed, and was inspired. What an insightful, compelling woman Tami Longaberger is! I am impressed and amazed that as a working mother with such heavy responsibilities as CEO and President of the Longaberger Company she has time for such introspection and sharing. Her writings, with the help of descriptive writer Jane Graham, lay open Tami's inner thoughts, feelings, fears and memories of her life and living that life in the limelight and at times the shadow of her father, Dave Longaberger the founder of the Longaberger Company.
