I received a lovely email just now from Jessica Turner of Alabama Chanin, kindly and generously correcting my note in last night's Windowlicker that Natalie Chanin of Project Alabama had ceased creating her famous (and famously locally-made) designs. She says Nathalie "has opened Alabama Chanin, it’s the same beautiful clothing and work, still here in Florence and yes sold exclusively to high fashion clients around the nation and world. Natalie even wrote a book called Alabama Stitch Book [and started a blog, Alabama Studio Style]. It tells about the stories and work we do, it has 14 beautiful how-to projects and even gives away our most famous skirt and corset pattern plus some special recipes . We would be so honored to have you guys drop by and visit the new facility, we even have a shop in the front of our facilities! We are located @ 462 Lane Dr Florence, AL 35630 our number is 256.760.1090. We will be posting a newer version of our website soon, but here is the link to our current site: alabamachanin.com." Will do, Jessica, thank you, and thanks for the update. I have never been so delighted to have been mistaken!
