Petition to stop the sale of Arrowmont property

Hello everyone- The reason I am writIng is because of a place called Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. This place is an amazing artist community. This place is located in the heart of Gatlinburg, tn. The land that arrowmont has existed on for almost 100 years is owned by Pi Beta Phi sorority. The Pi Phi's have been approached by a buyer for the land. This buy wants to build a water park on that land. This could be the end of Arrowmont. Below is a link to a petition that was started to help save Arrowmont. Please let your voice be heard and show your support for the school. There are many unknowns at the moment and we don't have a lot of answer yet but your voice is very important to the future of the school. Please send this message to everyone you know as we are trying to gather as many signatures as possible before Friday the 22nd. Thank you! The petition only takes a moment and is free. I truly appreciate all you- thank you

Recycled Gas Station

The goal of the International Fiber Collaborative is to provide an opportunity for people who enjoy working with fiber arts, whether professional artists, hobbyists or students, to come together from all over the world to express their concern about the worlds extreme dependency on oil. This year's project is called the World Reclamation Art Project (W.R.A.P.). Participants have crocheted, knitted, stitched, patched, or collaged 3 foot square fiber panels that expresses each participants concern about this topic. Simply by designing and creating these panels and participating in this project they are, in the larger picture, expressing their concern about this important subject to the rest of the world. All the panels have been sewn together to completely cover an abandoned gas station in central New York State.
