Weekend Workshop at Alabama Chanin
"We had the great opportunity to attend a weekend workshop at Alabama Chanin's design studio called "The Factory" located in the city of Florence, Alabama. Under the guidance of founder and celebrated fashion designer Natalie Chanin, the workshop allowed participants to work directly with her design staff, creating a piece of their choice, using Alabama Chanin's signature hand-sewing techniques. The message is to preserve these old American traditional techniques of quilting and stitching that are a part of the local artisans' heritage while promoting conservation and sustainability."
