I flew out of hot and dry North Alabama on Saturday afternoon and woke up in room #2 surrounded by the cool mountain airs of Penland, North Carolina.
I am here for the next two weeks to talk (and teach) about the Alabama Chanin style of sewing, design, and textiles.
As I wrote earlier in the year, I spent a magical time here during my days in design school in the mid-1980s.
I am looking forward to exploring design and textiles… and the mountains.
The next two weeks our posts will be dedicated to explorations at Penland. On the 23rd of July, we will return to our regularly scheduled programming.
In the meantime, sit back, enjoy these updates, photos, and stories from Penland (and plan your trip for next year).
