natalie chanin at arrow

in late january, our friend natalie chanin of alabama chanin was in athens to give a talk at ugh and she generously offered to lead a parent and child workshop at arrow as a fundraiser...a group of us gathered at arrow on a saturday morning and learned from her. we all brought old t shirts and a few scraps to work with; she brought a large pile of scraps of alabama chanin fabric and stencils, as well as needles and thread. after a brief intro to the basics of sewing we all went to work, deconstructing and constructing, until by the end of the morning, many of us had reworked and stitched our own special thing. it was so much fun and everyone left inspired! our friends from home.made contributed snacks and refreshments that kept us fueled as we sewed. thanks to all who came!
