Workshops with Alabama Stitch Book Author Natalie Chanin

I was one of the lucky participants in Natalie Chanin's first workshop in Florence, Alabama, last July, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I learned a lot, laughed a lot, ate great food, and made new friends--and ever since I have been thoroughly enjoying hand-stitching the dress and corset I started there (photos to come soon). And now Natalie has released her new workshop schedule for the months to come. If there's any way you can attend one, I heartily encourage you. For more information about what you will learn, the schedule, fees, logistics, and the fantastic time you are sure to have, click here.
