Instead of the word “Deadlines,” (this March 2028 Maker day takes place tomorrow), it’s time to re-frame last-minute opportunities as “Lifelines,” especially for the most marginalized among us. If this lead volunteer opportunity here is posted too late for your schedule, there are 2 more Maker Days scheduled through May when we adjourn for our Tucson summer sabbatical (June, July, and August). The next Maker Day is April 21. The final Maker day is May 26.

Hope to see you!

Other Lifeline opportunities from our favorite sister organization W.A.R.P. -Weaving a Real Peace:

Dear Friends of WARP, We are pleased to announce applications are now open for WARP’s 2023 Artisan Support Grants. Textile artisans from any country are welcome to apply.WARP is offering one-time grants of up to $500 for individual artisans and up to $1,000 for artisan groups. This year, we are providing two grant options: one for Basic Needs and one for Development. This reflects the fact that while many artisans may still need COVID or other emergency support, others are transitioning out of an emergency situation and now have needs that are more development-oriented. The application deadline is March 19th, 2023. The link to the electronic application form is below, with details about this year’s grant program. Please share this announcement with any textile artisan or artisan group you think would benefit from this grant. For any grant-related questions, please contact Diane Manning, WARP Grants Committee Chair, at wishes, WARP Grant Committee

In Border Peace,

Friends of Artisans Beyond Borders
