Ixchel Suarez at Canadian Tapestry Centre:
“I would like to thank the American Tapestry Alliance for being selected as a recipient for the Weaving The Future Grant.
This grant is designed to support weaving opportunities for children and to provide training in tapestry weaving to teachers and others who will, in turn, teach weaving to children.
As a weaver and an educator, I feel the responsibility to pass on and share my knowledge to other educators, in order to reach out Community at large of this wonderful, almost “lost” art: TAPESTRY.
Thank you ATA for this opportunity. Will share photos soon.”
Congratulations Ixchel Suarez and Canadian Tapestry Center in Oakville, Ontario!
Entry Deadline: October 15, 2018. This is not a postmark deadline. Entries must be received by this date.
If you enjoy weaving in a small format, ATA invites you to enter your work for Small Tapestry International 6: Beyond the Edge. Tapestries must not exceed 100 square inches (625 square centimeters) and cannot exceed 20 inches (50 cm) in any one dimension, though their edges can be as asymmetrical or as whimsical as you dare.
