Cashmere

Now personally, I'm not entirely convinced that this blog needs anything more than the title. But if you insist... At Dovecote, we are receiving loads of cashmere from Magaschoni in New York. It's soft, it's classic, it's versatile. Magaschoni prides itself on its love for the classics while being cognizant of trends. This is cashmere that will last for years as long as you take good care of and it comes in beautiful, flattering cuts for every woman. Classic crew neck? We've got... Full Post >

Meet Gilda McDaniel

This is my dear friend Gilda McDaniel. Today is her 25th anniversary here at Fearrington. That’s a long time, especially in the hospitality business. I shall now proceed to thoroughly embarrass her (she really doesn't like it when we brag on her - sorry Gilda). She is a true mensch - someone that we can all count on as a friend; someone who is always there to help when you are in a pickle. She is the coworker who jumps in and helps you move 200 ceremony chairs just as the rainstorm starts.... Full Post >

However, we are now into May and our vendors have flowers, plants, baked goods and canned preserves galore! Can't wait to see you on Tuesday. Full Post >

Special Guest at The Folk Art Show

Fearrington’s 12th Annual Folk Art Show was another huge success, an all-around delightful weekend.  You never know what sort of big surprises are in store at the Folk Art Show and this year did not disappoint! Mid-Sunday afternoon, André Leon Talley, former American editor-at-large of Vogue magazine, strolled in, all 6’6” of him!  He is an amazing figure, in stature, accomplishment and good cheer, so he did not go unnoticed…and then he disappeared in our Barn!
