In Newsletter #24, we announce anticipated, upcoming events for 2015. Our Makeshift/Friends of the Cafe Dinner series and Two-Hour Business Workshop at The Factory on March 5th and 6th will feature Ari Weinzweig, co-founder and CEO of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The dinner celebrates slow, sustainable, and inventive food, joined with Alabama Chanin’s ongoing conversations on craft, design, food, making, and community. During the business workshop, Ari will share his business experience and the approach to business that led to Zingerman’s success, including their unique business model, as well as the challenges all business owners and organizations inevitably face.
And this summer, we will host our second annual Classic Sewing Weekend at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee, beginning June 25th. Work with Natalie and the Alabama Chanin team to create a custom garment or project of your choice. The weekend includes instruction, materials, and delicious Blackberry Farm cuisine.
The Factory Store and Café are now open every Saturday. Stop by for brunch from 11:00am – 2:00pm, and visit our flagship store from 10:00am – 4:00pm.
