Banners of Hope Project

In collaboration with the Fabric Arts Council and the Craft and Hobby Association, the Charity Wings Art & Craft Center is happy to coordinate the traveling exhibit portion of the Banners of Hope Project! What is the Banners of Hope Project? It started with two friends and an idea. These friends wanted to do a project together to inspire hope through fabric arts. That conversation grew into the Banners of Hope Project which has become an international sensation allowing many artists,  from all over the world (Greece, Mexico, UK, Israel, Australia, Canada, Taiwan, and many more), to participate and make a difference.  Everyone is welcome to start their own Banners of Hope Project (CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS) and Charity Wings is happy to be the official “Model” and coordinator of the traveling exhibit!
