This Tapestry project's aim is to help people come to terms with changes in our lives as a result of the events that began with the 9/11 attacks on America. The Tapestry consists of panels of people's artwork and stories that are physically sewn together and brought around the country. This website shows The Tapestry in electronic form. Click the buttons on the left for information about the project, how to participate via email, how to become a sponsor, The Tapestry tour schedule, and how to bring The Tapestry or a workshop to your community.
