Tapestry Art's "Break the Bank" fundraiser was held Saturday evening, March 9, at the Banker's Club in downtown San Jose. A silent and live auction, along with a full array of gambling opportunities created a festive occasion for all. And if you didn't win, or get a chance to bid, there was also all that great food!

The centerpiece of the entrance area was the fabulous ice sculpture with the new Tapestry Arts Logo! (It was really cool).


Tapestry Arts has a new look!

Formerly Tapestry N Talent, and then Tapestry Arts Festival, the new organization is now called Tapestry Arts to reflect the many fundraising activities in addition to the Festival on Labor Day, August 31 to September 2nd, 2002. The new Tapestry Arts logo will appear on all branding and identifying material as well as signage, advertising and promotional material. For more info, contact Roger Watson at:
