Every so often we hear stories from Tapestry users in exotic places like Africa or New Zealand. Sometimes we also learn of users here in America who combine Tapestry with other programs, such as a Schole group that uses Tapestry’s history and literature. Sometimes we speak with families who are both far away and using Tapestry with another program–like Sue, a Classical Conversations Director on the other side of the world who plans to use Tapestry Primer this fall as an aid to her children’s memory work!

These stories tickle our fancy because they show us again how Tapestry can be applied in places or ways that we wouldn’t have thought to try, both at home and abroad. Therefore, this series of interviews is dedicated to our friends who use Tapestry… well, everywhere! Stay tuned for the the first article: “Tapestry is with Alesha in West Africa.”
