AMERICAN TAPESTRY ALLIANCE (ATA) is a non-profit organization which provides programming, grants, scholarships and opportunities for tapestry weavers around the world. In 2015 I participated in an ATA thinktank whose goal was to research approaches to appealing to new weavers. One of the ideas that grew out of that conversation was a social media tour, and since then I’ve hosted one every two years.
