BLACKBERRY FARM SUMMER (PART 2)

There’s a peace that surrounds you when you drive through the gates at Blackberry Farm. The sense of calm grows as you settle in. It’s the kind of feeling that comes from a combination of quiet reflection and good fellowship. The Smoky Mountain setting feels almost magical, but the people at Blackberry Farm are warm, hospitable, and grounding. The 4,200-acre working farm makes an impressive effort to preserve Appalachian foods and culture; the authentic atmosphere and delicious food are enough to make even the most citified visitor feel like a native—if only for a short time.

BLACKBERRY FARM SUMMER (PART 2)

For these (and so many more) reasons, we feel pulled back to Blackberry Farm time and again. (Think time to explore the award-winning wine cellar, a stellar spa, on-site culinary artisans, Lagotto Romagnolo truffle-hunting dogs, and more…) My first experience at the farm was extraordinary and made me long to host a workshop in that setting. Our first Weekend Workshop at Blackberry was unforgettable—I think the participants were as enchanted as I. And so we are excited to host our second (now annual) Classic Sewing Weekend, June 26 – 28 at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee.

BLACKBERRY FARM SUMMER (PART 2)

As always, the workshop includes all of the materials necessary to hand sew a custom do-it-yourself garment, incredible meals prepared onsite, beautiful settings, special guests and gifts from the Alabama Chanin studio in Florence, Alabama. Guests will work with our Alabama Chanin team to create a custom garment or project of their choice from the Studio Book Series (Alabama Stitch Book, Alabama Studio Style, Alabama Studio Sewing + Design, and Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns). Participants will be immersed in the Blackberry Farm way of life and the Alabama Chanin philosophy as they learn various stitching techniques, tips and tricks. Conducted in a casual, open forum, the workshop will cover a wide range of topics. Guests will enjoy inspiring instruction, provided materials, Blackberry Farm cuisine, laughter and fellowship.
