January 22–26, 2018

The American Tapestry Alliance is pleased to announce the 2018 Blog Tour! In anticipation of our 12th International, small format unjuried exhibition, The Biggest Little Tapestries in the World! we invite you to join the trek through the world-wide-web of weaving, delving into dynamic posts by weaver-bloggers from January 22–26, 2018. The blog tour will feature several prominent weaver-bloggers including Ellen Bruxvoot, Barbara Burns, Molly Elkind, Debbie Herd and Tommye Scanlin.

Prizes! By attending the tour, you’ll have the chance to win a weaving gift pack (including bobbins) from Halycon yarn, a tiny turned beater or a loom kit from Jim Hokett, a voucher from weaversbazaar, ATA memberships, and more! Ellen Bruxvoot of Fiberous will provide ATA’s first ever vlog component, where you will have the chance to get extra entries to win prizes by sharing your own design processes on social media in response.

Our mission for this year’s blog tour is to create a platform for sharing tapestry practices by engaging weavers (and weavers-to-be) in their peers’ artwork processes. While Barbara, Debbie, Molly, Tommye and Ellen share about how their designs develop, and you respond on social media, we wish to highlight the many approaches to designing tapestry with the hopes of opening up a conversation around the mantra, ‘there is no wrong way to design.’ The tour begins on January 22nd on Molly Elkind’s blog. We look forward to your participation then!
