Community Quilting with Terry this Saturday


Print-maker and quilter, Terry Schupbach-Gordon, will be at Wildflower this Saturday, September 28th from 10am until 2pm to inspire our first ever Wildflower Community Quilt. She'll be teaching us how to quilt the crazy way so bring your skills or just your hands and help us get to work. And always remember...

A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.
A day patched with quilting seldom unravels.
Ask not what your fabric can do for you, but what you can do for your fabric.
May all of your ups and downs in life be with a needle and thread.
Quilting with friends will keep you in stitches.
When life gives you scraps - make a quilt.

Our Go-To Shoe

We've been on a quest to find comfortable and fashionable shoes that are made in the states. While they're hard to find our search led us to Cordani. Each of their shoes are hand-made in very small factories by local artisans using traditional shoe-making techniques. We've brought in the Wellesley peep-toe wedge because this particular style is made in Los Angeles (some of their others are from Italy, Spain and Mexico). Besides the "local" vibe, we love supporting small family-run businesses, preserving old-world traditions and looking cute all at the same time. It's worth every penny.


Nourishing Transitions

Transition is in the air so sharing two updates on women who are taking charge and making changes is just what we like this time of year.  Both are named Kelly so it seemed even more appropriate. As some of you may know our beloved Anne has moved to Florida to help her daughter, Kelly, as she sets out on her own for the next phase of her life. Actually, "on her own" isn't exactly the right word. Anne, Kelly and her two children have set up a multi-generational home and are loving being close to the ocean and each other. What a concept to bring three generations together under one roof! Yet another "nourishing tradition" worth exploring.

The other Kelly is Kelly Lane. One of the very first designers we carried at Wildflower, Kelly Lane's dresses became and remain a favorite of many many Winston-Salem women. But lo and behold, and unfortunately for us, Kelly has decided to take a break from dress designing because she's had a child. Felix was born just before the launch of her Spring '13 collection, which is her last for awhile. Staying home to tend her garden and raise her infant son is Kelly's new focus. Transition and tradition are in the air and we're liking it.
