I fulfilled a dream and went to Florence, Alabama for a weekend by myself to a sewing workshop at Alabama Chanin. It was really wonderful, the people were lovely, the inspiration was overwhelming, the beauty was palpable. I have all three Alabama Chanin books and have worked (sporadically) on my dress; still, it was incredible to actually be there and touch real Alabama Chanin-made Alabama Chanin garments. And they are exquisite, really exquisite.
Now I'm home sweet home in Seattle - the best thing about going away.
