PRLog - Aug 02, 2013 - ROCKLIN, Calif. -- The results are in and The Tapestry Network led by Stephanie Sherwood barely edged out several other nominees and will receive a $500 grant and special recognition on their website from peaChic, an organization dedicated to supporting women-owned and women-focused businesses. The $500 grant is for new start up women businesses and is intended for expenses which may include establishing a web presence, procuring supplies or necessary equipment, marketing expenses, and other areas of business.

The members of The Tapestry Network competed with 20 other women owned businesses that were selected from grant applications submitted to peaChic.  “Each and every application is read by members of our Award Panel.  As they evaluate the information given on each application, the Award Panel decides on their top 20 selections from all applications received for a seasonal grant period. The applicants chosen are notified that their businesses will participate in a vote on our site amongst those 20 businesses,” stated a peaChic representative.

Dropping into 2nd place just two days before the voting ended, The Tapestry Network, used their social media connections to engage members to complete the race they started. Without hesitation members utilized phone calls, text messages, Facebook posts, Twitter and e-blasts to connect with their friends, family and business associates.  The exhilaration from staying up to watch the minute by minute change in the poll, left spectators with a high level of adrenalin and two sleepless nights. Minute by minute – the % went up and down. “It was brutal” noted one of The Tapestry Network members. Some of the committed voters were up at 4am to get their final votes cast.

Sherwood explained the reason she started The Tapestry Network was, “Out of a personal need to be surrounded by like-minded women, women that no longer wanted to live in separate-compartmentalized lives.  I started The Tapestry Network because I couldn't find anything to meet my own needs.  The Tapestry Network is a unique community of businesswomen that come together because they want to grow into God's idea of a successful woman.  Our success is measured by the lives we touch, the love, support and encouragement we offer.  It is about being in service to each other it is about being in service to our community.  It is about giving permission to women so they can be all God has called them to be without apology.”

The grant will help promote the mission and the vision of The Tapestry Network whose goal is to promote a national community that weaves together the unique gifts and talents of our members with love, support and encouragement to create an unstoppable sisterhood of like-minded business women.
