Quite trim and au courant in a pantsuit she made, Mike quietly explained her background that led to the design worki. This included nursing studies and management work in an employment office. Last February she married Cy (creative writing, public relations and real estate in summers and law at the University of Michigan.) "When we were married," he explained, "we decided to face everytlung together, to find something to do together." This not-unfamiliar marital pledge was reached earlier than! either expected, all because the; Fruchters needed a few dollars: to enjoy autrnnn in a cabin in' the wooded lakes near Petoskey, Mich. They wracked their brains for something to sell at the annual South University; Street fair near the UM cam-' pus. .As the story goes, Mike made, mini-dresses, which she preferred to wear rather than sell, and then she made prayer shirts, which she gave away.' Stuck for an item to hawk, the Fruchters decided on making exotic pillows when a friend showed them a piece of velvet tapestrj'. Sounds simple. But what a pillow — VA\A\i feet and IVi feet thick, wei^iing 25 pounds. The spinoff of the original now sells for $100 with truly elegant velvet tapestry designs in gohls, blues, blacks, puce, reds, purples. Mike helps select and design the fabrics. "For some reason," Fruchter said, "the pillow made everyone smile," and they sold 40 in four days for $80 each. To get the pillows ready in less than a week, "We were such amateurs we didn't know our crime m making a demand to; -New York converters for fabric for only 30 pillows in 10 different colors to be shipped the next day," Cy added. They had borrowed S50O to fly to New York, for their shoppmg spree. Finally, j someone took pity and sent thei couple to a merchant who bad the stunning geometries in cut velvet that are now their trademark. l^e N.Y. venture was only a, smidgeon of this Laurel-and- Hardy approach to manufactur- mg. Back home, the couple found an elderly farmer who who had converted a reaper into a foam-rubber shredder and they bought surplus rubber for the fillings. Then Mike added, "We; had trouble wifii ziw^ and can you imagine amateurs stuffing shredded rubber into &is 54-indi flung?" Finding such a heartoiing response at the fair, Fruchter began to schlepp (drag around) a piDow to stores. Not such an easy task for him since be lost an arm in surgery for cancer wiien 19.

It is made of nothing alive and no one is hurt by it," Fruchter explained. Although busy promoting the product Fruchter is concerned with the attitude of youth toward the United States. "I always thought I was part of the younger generation," he said, "until I visited a teen center recently. Their only desire appears to be to tear down the country.
