introducing the tapestry network

we “get” you! As Christian businesswomen, it seemed few understood our lives – and our needs. So we started this global sisterhood, with local gatherings, national conference, and online community, to help you live a life worthy of your unique calling in the marketplace. Want to grow into God’s idea of success for the whole woman? It takes authentic networking, business skills growth, and spiritual support from like-minded women. The Tapestry Network community provides fellowship, educational and spiritual enrichment through local chapters, mastermind groups, teleseminars and conferences. We are a comprehensive solution for the spiritual, business and fellowship needs of the Christian businesswoman. Why pay for your membership with The Tapestry Network? We offer what mere “networking” organizations do not: Personal Growth that leads to Life Improvement; Spiritual Enrichment that leads to Peace and Spiritual Prosperity; and Business Training that leads to Success and Financial Improvement. JOIN US!

“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11


The Tapestry Network, co-founded by Stephanie Sherwood and Barbara Wilber, is undoubtedly the boldest, most transformational, and scripturally grounded Christian Businesswomen Network that I have personally experienced to date! Finally, an organization that understands that putting God first allows women to be everything God has always intended for them to be, both at home and in their work. Julie Ziglar Norman Speaker, Author and Founder of Ziglar Women

testimonials

“The Tapestry Network is a business environment unlike any other. The warmth of connections made through Tapestry Network has exceeded all of my expectations - supportive, fun, resourceful, spiritual and driven business women standing at the ready to help fellow members accomplish their highest goals and fulfill their purpose. The Tapestry community is one in which I feel welcomed, encouraged and inspired.”

“The last year with the Tapestry Network has been great for me personally, spiritually and professionally. I’ve connected with so many great business women---many of them have become very close friends. I’ve gotten involved with the Master’s Mind program and that has been a tremendous push for me in getting more involved in my business on a spiritual level. Tapestry Network has also afforded me the opportunity to get in front of the room as a speaker and as a table leader---both of which I’ve never felt comfortable getting into prior to my involvement with Tapestry Network. I’ve also gotten some new business connections who have come back to me for repeat projects as well as provided me referrals.”

“I’m really new to the Tapestry Network but I can tell you it has already opened me to opportunities to plug into an incredible group of faith based women that has touched my life in a personal way. It’s helping me form friendships and business connections all the while encouraging my gifts and talents. It also is connecting me to people in our community, such as the Luis Palau Women’s Luncheon, that has connected me to even more incredible people with the same heart of serving.

community compassion We love to “love on” our community!

What they do | Who they serve | How we can support them By doing this we are giving a voice and support to their cause and we get to come along side them. Additionally, we raise money at our Tapestry Gatherings for the showcased non-profits that they get to leave with! To date, thousands of dollars have been donated and dozens of organizations have been supported.

“And do not neglect doing good and sharing; for with such sacrifices,God is pleased.” Hebrews 16:13

the founders Barbara Wilber and Stephanie Sherwood went from being strangers, to competitors, to friends and then to partners. The Tapestry Network was conceived one rainy day in the front seat of Barb’s car as Stephanie poured out her heart and dream for this project. Barb dreamed of a Christian Businesswoman’s Conference and Stephanie asked to partner with her to put it together - and that is how the Tapestry Network came to be.

the founders

They both live in Rocklin, California and love working with women in the marketplace. Their desire is to see women become unstoppable and to exalt the name of Christ in the business community.

“We invite you to become a part of The Tapestry Network community.”
