Alabama Chanin

Hi Teresa,
I just wanted to write and say thanks again for the beautiful bags! They were a huge hit at our weekend workshop. We had guests from all over this time around, about ten of us in all….but it seemed like a full house. I suppose when you get any number of ladies around a table swapping stories and laughing it feels like a bit of a party. One guest, who made the journey from Guadalajara, got hassled by customs because they refused to believe there was any sort of fashion industry in Florence, Alabama. I guess it is a little hard to believe- but we are alive and well in Northern Alabama!

There was quite an array of project undertakings; these were some gutsy ladies who took on some of the most beautiful and intricate appliquĂ© patterns we offer. I’m sure they were all very thankful to have amazing bags to hold their unfinished garments. Again, thank you for your generosity; we’re looking forward to the upcoming blog interview!

June Flowers-Stedman and all of us @ Alabama Chanin

This is a follow up from this post about Natalie Chanin. Natalie hosts Alabama Studio Weekend Workshops @ The Factory in Florence, Alabama. She also does one day events all over the country. To see the complete schedule go here. If you can attend one of the workshops, I HIGHLY recommend it. It is worth every penny, Natalie is an absolute doll! Teresa

PS, All the bags that I sent for the above workshop were made with vintage fabric or from my FABULOUS sponsors, Amy Butler, Harmony Art Organic and Les Indiennes Organic.
