Hostessing a Tea is a fun, creative way to share Tapestry of Grace with your friends in the comfort of your home.
Invite a few of your friends over for tea (or coffee), and use your choice of our promotional flyers, videos, sample week-plans, or other online aids to help you explain what Tapestry is and how it works.
When you share with friends in this way, it's win-win for both you and your friends. They get to hear about an award-winning way to breathe new life into their homeschools, and you may receive cash benefits if they order using your affiliate code. (See more on this on the tab above: "How do I benefit?")
