Final big show on Nova Scotia's South Shore

For 7 amazing years, TAMMACHAT has visited and worked with more than a dozen weaving co-ops, social enterprises, certified fair trade businesses and family weaving groups in Thailand and Laos.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to the hundreds of women weavers who welcomed us into partnership to preserve their artistic and cultural traditions, to enhance the status of women and to create additional income for rural families. Now it's time for a change. Read more...

But first, we invite you to join us for our final big show of 2014 in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia: Oct. 3-5, 2014, during the Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Show. More details...
