Tapestry Boutique Applications

The Boutique area sold out in 2013. Please visit the Tapestry Website for more information or contact the Tapestry office at or 260-481-6854. Applications are due January 10, 2014.

Happy Holidays!

I love the holidays, but have to admit they can be a little stressful. It's the time of year when I search for that special something for my friends and family. If you're like me, you appreciate a unique gift idea. This year, give something truly thoughtful! On Friday, April 25, 2014, more than 1,400 women will enjoy a day of inspiration, renewal, and education at Tapestry. Why not give that day to someone special on your list? Download a gift certificate (PDF) ready to be completed and wrapped, then send us an email at and include the name of that special someone. In March we'll send you an email reminder to register her (and you!) for Tapestry.

Registration for open seating is $65 each and a reserved table for 10 is $700. It's a gift you can look forward to giving. When the snow melts and spring is finally here, you and your friends can relax and enjoy Tapestry: A Day for You together.

Breakfast Program Announced

Courtney Leigh Heins 

We are excited to announce that Courtney Leigh Heins will be speaking and performing at the 2014 Tapestry breakfast program. Heins, a Fort Wayne native, is a rising country singer who recently won Best Country Song of the Year for "Bright Blue World" at the International Music and Entertainment Association (IMEA) Awards.


With songs playing on over 500 radio stations internationally and with over 30 film and television productions to her credit, Heins continues to prove that she is a force to be reckoned with. Combining Americana with country, folk, and pop, Heins' music tells stories of her roots in Fort Wayne along with her more recent experiences at her new home in Los Angeles. Heins will speak about her journey, "From Heartland to Hollywood," and share her struggles, perseverance, and what it means to follow your dreams. In addition, Heins will entertain the Tapestry audience with three songs.
