Left: “Inspired By quilt”, 2014 by Beth Shibley, Los Alamitos, California, contributor Quilt Alliance with accompanying essay “Flags of Hope” essay, by Natalie Chanin, published in Talking Textiles, Issue 1 for New York Textile Month, September 2016 (pages 206–207).

“A quilt tells a story about its maker, specific to a time and place; a quilt, quite literally, is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.” —Natalie Chanin from “Flags of Hope,” published in Talking Textiles, Issue 1 for New York Textile Month, September, 2016 

This Friday will introduce new entries, beginning in 2014, for the Alabama Chanin 21 Years Celebration. Chronicling collaborations and achievements in Alabama Chanin’s Building 14 manufacturing division, the start of the Friends of the Café Dinner series and other partnerships through The Factory Café, the next series of stories builds on the values of the multi-fold organization after the founding of The School of Making, Building 14, and The Factory Store + Café. 

This celebration marks Natalie’s legacy in sustainable design and honors our collaborators, team, friends, community, artisans, and those that have inspired Natalie and Alabama Chanin through their work and partnerships over the decades.  

Explore the 21 Years Celebration and find designs symbolic of Natalie’s journey in the 21 Year Collection.
