Be prepared to put yourself in a very cool trance.
I had no clue before moving here that Asheville would be such a spot for people making really great things. It is full of established, talented people who very much know what they are doing which is an inspiring thing to be surrounded by. Connected to that community is the so beautiful and wonderful gallery, Center for Craft, Creativity and Design. The space is incredible (rough concrete walls and floors, tons of sun) and they curate interesting, surprising, and thoughtful shows. Their current exhibit, Made in WNC, pulls together work and stories from over 20 local craftspeople who have all started their businesses within the past 10 years. I was excited to hear about the show and floored when asked to contribute a few pieces to the exhibit. It is a beautiful collection of the work that happens in this area and definitely worth a look if you have a chance. The show is up now through January 9th.
I have been working on developing a new line of bedding for the last few months and could not be more excited to finish it up and put it out there. Each quilted bedspread, throw blanket and sham will be made with a soft, unbleached organic cotton and heirloom organic cotton batting both grown in the United States. The blankets are a perfect weight for spring and summer temperatures and have a light, but high-quality feel to them. As with all of our items, each piece is handmade in hand painted with non-toxic, wash-safe paint. Please keep an eye out in the shop over the next few weeks!
