You are invited to our Peace of My Heart® Prayer Shawl Weave-Along! August 17 - September 14, 2020
Why A Prayer Shawl? When the COVID-19 lockdown first began, I was inspired to serve our weaving community by offering projects that would encourage weavers to focus on things that are not only beautiful but meaningful.
This Peace of My Heart® Prayer Shawl was designed specifically so that we could come together and weave something together. This Peace of My Heart® Prayer Shawl is a collaboration between Sarah Jackson of Sarah Jackson Designs and Irene Schmoller of Cotton Clouds.
This project will encourage weavers to stay focused, take their time, and weave beautiful “slow fabric” that is as light as air. For this new Prayer Shawl, we chose fine, silk-like yarn—Bambu-12—to create a delicate, luxurious fabric. It is a meditation in movement. There are 986 ends to thread at 30 epi. It's Slow Fabric for a slowed down time.
Symbols of Life Woven Into the Fabric
Sarah chose a shadow weave draft with a motif evocative of cross wood grain which brings to mind the seasons of growth and change in our lives. The shape is also reminiscent of a pomegranate, a fruit with various cultural-religious significance as a symbol of life and beauty and unity.
Why a Prayer Shawl Weave-Along?
Sarah's Weave-Alongs offer a unique opportunity to find encouragement and inspiration as weavers share their love of weaving while working on the same project for approximately four weeks. The schedule allows time for warping, weaving, and finishing, plus sharing and celebrating the completed projects. Sarah will guide you step-by-step in creating the luxurious fabric for this prayer shawl.
An additional element will make this Weave-Along unlike any other: You will be encouraged to share your prayers and poems; your hopes and dreams as you weave them into your fabric; prayers for ourselves, for other individuals, for our families, for our communities, and for our world.
You are Invited!
Now, more than ever, it is vital for us to stay connected with other weavers; to nourish our souls by weaving beautiful fabrics; to create gifts of love filled with the hopes and dreams we have for ourselves and for those we love; to look to the future with hope, and to encourage each other. We need each other. Together we are stronger.
