Peace Felt

I have been weaving Peace Banners for four years now and thoroughly enjoy it. It is always a collaborative event. Here is one that was completed on International Peace Day (Sept. 21) in 2007…

This year, I read about Peace Felt and decided to participate. We were given the name of a person who would send us a package and also the name of a different person to send to. The peace would be passed in a circle.

I received my beautiful Peace Felt rug in the mail from Arizona…

Of course, the cats had to check it out…

I also received some wonderful hand looms called “Wee Walnut Weavers” and a lucet – all handmade by Kristi.

I sent off my package to Maryland. I made a bag with local Salt Spring wool from the Gulf Islands Spinning Mill. It is crocheted and then felted. I call it “Serenity”.

And so the circle of peace continues…

Peace to all,

    I so love your woven peace banners, Terri. And since I was born on Aug. 6 (Hiroshima Day), I feel compelled to weave one–but maybe not on such a large scale. I find Saori weaving so liberating, having woven highly planned projects most of my weaving life. I’ve woven one Saori-style length of yardage (intending to cut it into smaller pieces for sewing projects), but now it’s time to weave a bodacious banner. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I can’t wait to see your bodacious banner and am so happy to hear that more people will be weaving for peace!

    Happy Weaving,
