Weave a Real Peace (WARP) was founded in 1992 by Deborah Chandler as a way to connect friends in the United States with textile artisans in developing countries. She thought her friends could provide the artists with resources and networking, and that they all could learn from one another. Since that time, WARP has grown from a few members to robust organization that connects weavers, dyers, and other textile artisans and artists around the world. 

Anyone can become a member of WARP. It doesn't require any special connections to the fiber industry or retailers. All you have to do is have a passion for textiles and believe in WARP's mission. WARP has a quarterly newsletter, discussion boards, and an annual meeting where members can get together in person to discuss new initiatives and experiences. For more information on WARP, the organization's mission, and how to join, check out their website.
