VOL. 59  /  DISH

Last week, we were in denial that it's already November, and now we're ready to be present and enjoy the start of the holidays. We're sharing a couple of fun happenings that will get your gift gears turning, as well as a sweet tip to start your Thanksgiving planning.

Get out there!

Hands On

Indigo


Local artisan and blogger Miranda Anderson hosts her Shibori Indigo dyeing classes in Salt Lake City, Portland and Chicago - but we get them first! We’ve been eyeing her events for a while now, so here’s the dish with her workshop this month.

The two-hour class will allow you to bring two one-of-a-kind towels home, all while learning the magic behind textile art. You will experience the whole process of preparing, folding and dyeing natural fabric to create Shibori patterns.

Maybe the perfect opportunity to start your holiday gifting?

The Holidays


Next weekend, the 54th annual Craft & Design show pulls into Main Street Station. Get a solid head start on gift giving with the ability to browse 150+ vendors at once.

So, where to start? First, Church Hill boutique Dear Neighbor has curated 10 killer brands to appear in its own Dear Maker booth. That's a must. Next, vendors and artists are coming from all over the country, but we’ve got our eyes on the Virginia makers, including Grant Garmezy Glass (so unexpected), Shira Brooks Studio JewelryDaniel Rickey Furniture and Chamblin Design (fine jewelry).

Up the ante with food and drink at the Friday night preview party, as well as Saturday and Sunday breakfasts.

The Pie


This year, Thanksgiving is happening on the earliest date possible. Are you ready? We're definitely not. One step to make Thanksgiving meal planning a little easier - and a little tastier: order a pie from a local baker! Check out our favs.

Whisk / That sexy pie pictured above is a Sweet Potato Buttermilk Tart. Wait 'til you see the rest of their menu.

Chairlift at Someday / This Friday, pop by Someday, the new Broad St. home store, to order a pie from Chairlift and buy the platter you'll serve it on, for that homemade touch...

Proper Pie Co. / Online ordering is already open for everything from a classic Apple to a Hazelnut Tan slice.

Better move fast - we had intended to include Pie Y'All on this list, but they've already sold out! (They're still worth checking out.)
