Our Highest Vision
To connect every country in an energetic circle of peace,
unconditional love, and gratitude.
For Peace to be Felt in hearts across the world.
To promote peace and connectivity among nations, loving kindness among
individuals, gratitude in our hearts and in our consciousness - knowing
that WE create our world through our thoughts, words and actions.
To, as Gandhi reminded us, "Be the change we wish to see
in the world."
To promote awareness of the ancient art of felt making and the modern
craft of needle felting for its qualities of being earth friendly, extremely
versatile, and easy to learn!
How The Circle of Giving & Receiving Works
Participants will create a piece of art which includes at least 50%
hand made felt (can be needle felted or wet felted or both). The piece
may be functional or a purely decorative piece that is for the creator,
a symbol of Peace or Unconditional Love.
Each participant will be connected with a Peace Felt Partner.
*We will send you the NAME, EMAIL, and MAILING ADDRESS of your PEACE FELT
Each participant will send their PEACE FELT to their Partner and will
receive one in return.
This "Circle of Peace and Love" steps outside the bounds of
traditional "exchanges" where one may often have expectations
of an "equal" trade with their exchange partner; expecting that
what is received matches the perceived value of what was given. Instead,
this circle of giving and receiving invites participants to give freely
and feel the reward of truly giving in the spirit of love and without
Simultaneously, the individual has the opportunity to receive love without
anything being asked of them. So many of us can benefit from removing
the guilt and obligation we may associate with "receiving" a
gift from another, and allow ourselves to be worthy just for being who
we are, to allow ourselves to accept of gift of loving kindness, to simply
say "thank you" and know that nothing is "owed".
Individuals will be matched with other individuals.
We are not registering children or groups for one-to-one exchanges.
The sending and receiving of your PEACE FELT will take place
in the month of September as a symbolic celebration of the International
Day of Peace, celebrated on September 21st. Please consider publicly
displaying/exhibiting your PEACE FELT through this day, holding a workshop
to create works for PEACE FELT or even creating your PEACE FELT on this
day. Your PEACE FELT should be mailed to your Receiving Partner between
September 01 and September 15th.
Sending out works of PEACE FELT during this month will result in these
handcrafted works of art creating an energetic circle of peace and loving
kindness around the planet as they travel from one heart to the next.

CREATING WORKS OF PEACE FELT - Things to consider
If you are a weaver, quilt maker, basket weaver, fiber artist, sculptor,
mixed media artist, etc. you may wish to participate by incorporating
handmade felt into your preferred medium. Your PEACE FELT is to include
at least 50% hand made felt, which can be wet felted, needle felted, or
Your PEACE FELT does not have to be large -- just let it be a symbol
of Love, Peace, Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Unity, Oneness, etc. that comes
from your heart.
For individuals, we are suggesting that pieces are NOT LARGER THAN 12”
x 12” in size. This includes sculptures and flat pieces.
If you choose to make a scarf or something long,
there really is no restriction on the dimensions; we simply wish to support
a size that is comfortable for all to both create and to ship anywhere
in the world. Keep in mind the costs and logistics of shipping and mailing
to your Partners in Peace.
Please consider hosting an event, teaching children or leading a group
to make their works of PEACE FELT! Let us know about it, tell us about
your gathering or event by emailing
- Your name or name of your group
- Date(s) Event
- Name or description of event.
Felt is an amazing non-woven fabric that is created by entangling wool
and other animal fibers together into a dense mat. To create felt, we
first arrange the fibers so they are lying in various directions; if they
are all going in the same direction, the fibers cannot intertwine as easily.
Then we add pressure, heat (with hot soapy water), and agitation ... or
"friction". Doing this causes the tiny barbs on the fibers to
open up and allows them to entangle, intertwine and lock together. The
process pushes out air, minimizing the space between the fibers and draws
them closer and closer together.
Under pressure, heat and friction, the fibers bond more closely, entangling
themselves into a strong durable fabric that cannot be unraveled and will
not fray when cut.
if we humans turned our struggles into a means to become closer, to join
together so strongly that we could not be frayed. Imagine appreciating
the strength we gain from our different angles and perceptions on the
world, imagine that it permits us to bond and create something greater,
something stronger than we could create if we all saw things the exact
Imagine this in our families, our jobs,
our schools, our cities, our countries, our world.
Join with us, to celebrate the strength
we gain from our differences by making sure this year, there will be PEACE
FELT Around the World.
God Bless You. Namaste. Shalom.
