WHOLESOME WAVE GEORGIA + TWO SKIRTS

WHOLESOME WAVE GEORGIA

Last October, we held a One-Day Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia. DIY Kits for the workshop had been cut, packaged, and shipped days before the event, but they never arrived in Atlanta, lost in transit. This was a workshop crisis. However, this particular workshop turned out to be one of our best to date. In a beautiful expression of communal crafting, twelve people collaborated to create two Alabama Chanin Swing Skirts from the only kits I happened to carry with me. While we were initially disappointed over the lost box, we soon learned of the people in the Northeast who lost lives and homes as Hurricane Sandy beat down on the New Jersey and New York shores. We didn’t know how lucky we were.

The group decided we would donate the skirts, signed by each participant and each name embroidered. The skirts will be auctioned off at the 4th Annual Southern Chefs Potluck event on September 8th to benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to driving business to Georgia farmers and increasing access to wholesome foods for all Georgians. Community crafting encourages community growth.

A warm thank you to all who attended the workshop and helped to create these beautiful skirts:

    How lovely. Just got home from the Woodstock one day workshop. Can’t think of a better way to spend the day. Thank you so much to Natalie, Olivia and her team.
