Echoview is an innovative fiber processing and manufacturing hub that’s a catalyst for connecting community with commerce. We deliver products and services that fuel the American spirit of hard work and self-expression.
Echoview honors America’s pioneering past but always has an eye on the future. We are innovators, believers and dreamers. We’re also doers. We intend to bring pride to the label “Made in America.” America has always celebrated the individual. But at the same time, we know we’re stronger together. Our country is a lot like a patchwork quilt. Each square is important on its own, but each one also enhances the beauty of the entire creation.

Colorful Palate: Not everyone loves to cook. Or entertain. Or plan events. But we do. And we do it all for the love of food!
We think our food is pretty amazing. We make it with local, seasonal ingredients whenever possible. And by hand, with love, everyday.
Compassion is the quality we most need to heal ourselves as individuals, our deeply polarized and increasingly violent society, and the Earth itself. This simple, yet, deceptively difficult practice has three main ingredients: The ability to see suffering clearly (one’s own, that of others, and that of the Earth’s); the ability to open to suffering with kindness and care; and, lastly, to follow the naturally arising impulse to act with wisdom and skill on behalf of the afflicted. Jack Hannibal, a former acting teacher turned psychotherapist, presentation coach and mindfulness meditation teacher, will share his own story of coming to compassion as well as guide the CreativeMorning’s audience through a series of meditation-based compassion exercises.
