More shapes flying in from all over the world

Tommye Scanlin, from Georgia USA
More submissions are arriving daily for the international tapestry project, Fate, Destiny and Self Determination.   How exciting to have these very talented, experienced and well respected tapestry weavers participate in this project. When I first sent Tommye the shape she was assigned to weave her first impression is that the shape resembled the state of Georgia! My response: no coincidences! Tommye is a very active member with the American Tapestry Alliance and she also took a 6 week course at West Dean in tapestry weaving. She chronicled her experiences on her excellent and enviable weaving adventure most certainly.  She teaches weaving in many venues in the USA.
