Each year the holiday season renews our sense of thankfulness and fellowship. Thankful for the abundance of love and support in our own lives, we are inspired to give back to the community that nourishes us. This year we focus on Project Threadways. Working in partnership with the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area and the University of Mississippi’s Center for the Study of Southern Culture, Alabama Chanin aims to collect oral histories, analyze and publish data, and stage events that serve as centers for conversation, exploring the connection between community and the evolving region through the lens of material culture.
Through the Project Threadways nonprofit, we explore, celebrate, and share the heritage of our community and craft. On this Giving Tuesday, we invite you to donate to Project Threadways or any other organization doing good work in your local community.
