One stunningly beautiful world symbolically represented by braided Scarves of Peace.


 

Peace Fibres "...invites one to explore the multicultural and multigenerational world of threads connecting each of us to the larger tapestry of the global community."

Bud McClure, Ph.D, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota, Duluth

"It isn’t enough to talk about peace, one must believe it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it, one must work for it."                                                                                                                         

Eleanor Roosevelt

Stitch a soulful world...




International Day of Peace, September 21.  Observed through community braiding of Scarves of Peace...... from common threads, a world of strength and beauty we are weaving.        

     Lyn of Duluth will deliver scarves to Cuba when she leads a group for Witness for Peace. How we would love to join her!

                                   

A community  of braiders in Grand Marais, MN on September 21.... great energy and great fun!  The event was sponsored by the Violence Prevention Center of Cook County; participants contributed to the organization.... Thanks to all!

For more images of the braiding events, see the "Events" page.


   

Peace.  How do we find peace, personally and politically?

Peace requires respectful relationship.... to self..... to one another..... to Earth and all her creatures..... to the larger whole. 

What if simple fibres offer a very real avenue toward this peace?  The thesis of PEACE FIBRES is exactly this!  Fibre work connects us across time, across space, within. 

Oneness, the intersection of science, art, and spirituality through community. From the DNA threads of which we are all formed, to the compassionate sheltering of nations torn apart by war or natural disaster, to the inspirational art that adorns our walls and tables, fibres create a tapestry of oneness.

PEACE FIBRES is an invitation to participate in stitching a soulful world tapestry.

Take that first stitch now.... form a group or simply start on your own.... from common threads, a world of strength and beauty we can create.

Peace.
