My son Michael is an artist, working mostly in oils and drawings. He was in Woolworth Walk many years ago and is back! Woolworth is an historical landmark, even has a working soda fountain inside. The rest of the space is divided into cubicles for artists who pay a monthly fee and a small percentage of sales. Woolworth is on Haywood Street (our version of Main Street) in downtown Asheville, NC. It's a wonderful place to see new and well known local artists and also have the opportunity to purchase their work.

Every year I like to do a blog on my garden as my husband and son do a really good job with it. I have the total opposite of a green thumb and can't take any of the credit but I do enjoy it.
My husband who likes to build things, built this arbor for some rose bushes to grow on.

Then it was on to a new shop in town....Meet Molly Hamilton, owner of this wonderful, new shop called Folkwear. Do you remember the line of Folkwear patterns ...out many years ago. They were wonderful, authentic, unique and just fun to own. I had many of them, some I made into clothing and some I just liked to look at .....over and over because they were beautiful designs. Molly has a wall full and just looking at them brought back memories.
The mini library has wonderful books and magazines dealing with all areas of clothing and embellishment....so grab a book
There are areas for cutting and sewing where you can see how they work; Molly and her partner make many of the wonderful samples you are about to see.
And here is our Dort who looks adorable in the 1940s dress....She had to have the pattern also.

First up, show and tell - Georgia got us started showing us flower bands for all of her students.
Dort (below) showed us her latest in a series based on a trip to France with her sister. What I particularly love and tried to highlight is the decorative stitching around the edge between piecing...thought that was so clever and interesting without taking away from the focal point.
Marene showed us her quilt from John Campbell Folk Art School where she assisted Georgia in the classroom. This was the class project and Marene wanted to try it herself...wonderful colors.
Next part of our day was a trip to the new shop - Folkwear....
See the next post for lots of fun pictures and information on this wonderful new edition to Fairview.
