Peace Tapestries

 

Our first 13 years, we attended festivals, events and programs with our Peace Tapestries materials and invited the attendees to stop, contemplate our given question for that particular event and let the spirit move from their hear to their hand and draw it on a 12X12 Tapestry peice. We brought it home, sewed it into a Tapestry and presented it to an organization as an expression of our appreciation for their work in the world. We encouraged them to use that Tapestry as an instrument of peace and pass it on in the same spirit we gave it to them.

"One of my favorite memories of any tapestry experience was at the Soka University International Festival. While a man was patiently waiting by as his daughter was drawing, Linda suggested that he take a square and draw. He said, “No, I cannot draw”. He was very reluctant but Linda is very persuasive and he finally picked up a pen. 

His piece had only 2 colors, red and black. It was not symmetrical or particularly “artistic” but it’s one of my favorite pieces so far. In black pen he drew a circle (Earth) with stick figures as people standing on the circumference  and with black letters he wrote, “Interfaith Peace Knows No Colors”
