Thanks to everyone who joined us this past Saturday and helped make the second installment of our workshop series a success! We had a great time painting and planting with all of you, and for those who couldn’t make it to Community for this one, stayed tuned as our workshop series continues with a new installment next month.

Studio Visit: Sherrie Hannah

One of our favorite things to do as an artist collective is to go out into the community and see what our local artists, designers, and makers are up to. Seeing someone else’s process and space is a nice refresher for our own artistic pursuits and we thought you might feel the same. When we most recently took a little trip to Staunton, Virginia to visit the space of seamstress and textile artist, Sherrie Hannah, we decided to snap a few shots to share.

Sherrie’s studio is one of the loveliest we’ve ever seen. It’s sun-filled, surrounded by windows, and huge - a necessity for someone who occasionally makes festival tents using 1,000 yards of fabric or more. She also has an impressive collection of textile machinery (some new, some antique) including a button holer, a buttoner, a blind hemmer, a straight stitcher, a zig-zagger, and a serger. Needless to say, we got a little envious.

Thank you to everyone who came out for our weaving workshop on a cold and icy day this past weekend. It was as much fun for us as it was for you (at least we hope so) and stay tuned, we’ll be having new workshops coming up soon.

Jessica Lee is an integral part of Community. Besides being one of our co-founders, she is also one of our favorite designers in the collective. Her dreamy silk line, willow knows, just released its Spring 2013 Lookbook and it’s everything one could hope for: diaphanous, heavily hued, and maybe most importantly, best suited for warmer months.

New willow knows pieces should be arriving at Community soon, so come take a peek.
