Stronger Together
Moving forward together stitch by stitch.

How do we find our powerful voice so we can express our unique gifts to give the world?

Participating in Woven Voices is a journey that starts with self-reflection and writing, and transforms into a woven tapestry, a visual storyboard of women’s lives from around the globe. The 3 elements of the Woven Voices project work together as tools to access, claim, and celebrate our power as individuals and together as a global community of women.  

WRITE

The words  “text” and “textile” share the same Latin root- texere – meaning to weave. When you write out the significant events of your life, you begin to weave a beautiful story. Then, actually weaving a piece of cloth to represent that story, and stitching it into the final tapestry celebrates both your uniqueness and the connection we have as women all over the globe.

WEAVE

The act of writing and the act of weaving connect us with our inner wisdom by allowing us to use both our left-brain language processes and our right brain symbolic resonance. As we engage our whole selves in self-reflection we discover a new understanding of the choices we have made, the connections we have fostered, and the obstacles that we have overcome.

SHARE

Gather your kindred spirits, circle your tribe, collect your community and create a time and space to share your woven voices. Sharing your story is the third powerful element of the Women’s Woven Voices project.

Sharing your story allows your voice to be heard, connects you with your inner resources, and cultivates courage to create change.  

How to Submit & Share

FROM BRECIA

Each story cloth is stitched together with loving care. Before I begin stitching, I center myself in prayer and affirm blessings for each woman who has contributed their story cloth.

I am adding a red fringe to 3 out of every 4 strips in the tapestry to create a visual talking point about sexual abuse.

Please share this project with the various women’s groups that you belong to. It’s a great way to create a deeper connection and it’s fun.  You can also gather a group of women with whom you want to share the experience: Family, friends, sorority sisters, coworkers, colleagues, neighbors, church members.

Order your loom kits and set a time to circle up. The how-to videos will walk you through the set-up of the loom, the weaving and the finishing.  Download the writing prompts for each member of the group.  Allow time for self-reflection and writing. Weaving together in community can be very fun and sets the mood for sharing. Create a circle of confidentiality, trust, acceptance, and non-judgement and commit to open active listening from the heart. Share with the group or in pairs. Acknowledge the courage and strength of each woman present. Celebrate the joys and accomplishments.

When you have completed your woven story cloths, mail it in to Brecia to be added to the global tapestry. If you mail the group of weaving together, they will be stitched together in the tapestry.

Have each person fill in the online submission form.

Share the project with women in your community.

The Women’s Woven Voices tapestry is made up of the story cloths of women from around the world. Woven into those stories are the men in each woman’s life.

Together we can foster a culture of self-knowledge and sharing that builds courage and fosters a sense of power in women everywhere to contribute to their communities in positive ways.

You can actively listen and allow women to tell the story of their lives, as a catalyst for change, particularly by opening up discussions about issues of domestic violence and sexual abuse in a safe and supportive way.

You can promote resilience, compassion, open communication, healing and peace in individuals and communities.

Please visit the Resource page.
