Tapestry Weavers South is an organization dedicated to advancing the art and craft of tapestry weaving.

In 1996 eighteen people interested in Tapestry attended a retreat in Dahlonega, Georgia, that became the initial meeting for a regional organization of tapestry weavers.  From that meeting Tapestry Weavers  South (TWS) was formed.

TWS supports the goals of the American Tapestry Alliance (ATA), a national organization.  Our membership includes tapestry weavers of all skill levels, primarily in the southeastern states.  However, membership in TWS is open to all individuals with an interest in tapestry.
