Pendleton Fabrics at the Western Design Conference

Pendleton and Old Hickory

In September, we worked with Old Hickory (learn more here:  https://www.oldhickory.com/ ) to cosponsor a booth at the Western Design Conference. Click on photos below to see larger versions.

The booth showcased Old Hickory’s design aesthetic and their amazing handcrafted furniture. We supported their presentation with fabric, blankets and props, and thought you might be inspired by photos of this wonderful booth.

What is the Western Design Conference?

To quote their website:

The Western Design Conference (WDC) brings together artists, scholars, collectors, interior designers, architects, and fashion designers with a passion for the West. From documented American craft, to home design, to fashion, the show is expanding to encompass all aspects of the best of Western design. This event celebrates functional museum-quality creations capturing the spirit of the West.

Pendleton Womenswear – 70 years of style and inspiration at the Woolen Mill Store!

Party with Pendleton

We recently had a wonderful party at our downtown Portland Pendleton store, that included archival garments. See the fun in the movie below.

Our guests loved seeing the garments of the past, and took the time to examine the care and craftsmanship.

Bringing the display to the WMS

Well, guess what? In a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pendleton move, we’ve brought some of our favorite archival garments to the Woolen Mill Store.

WW-70th-web

Each garment’s history is there for you, along with vintage advertising. While you’re looking over these sweet pieces of Pendleton history, pick up a copy of our WOVEN #5, which tells the story of Pendleton’s line for women alongside a historical timeline for the last 70 years. You can pick up a copy at the store or read it online here:

Do come pay us a visit! You can check out the original 49’er that started it all–and that inspired our 1949 Jacket pattern!

Creative Customer: Fit for a Queen!

Creativity Reigns!

We have two sets of photos of this young rider and contestant, in outfits made with Pendleton wool from our own USA looms. We couldn’t be more proud of how our patterns have been incorporated in these designs. You can click each photo to see a larger version.

First, a take a twirl with Rodeo Royalty: Pip competing at Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon in the dress she went on to wear during her reign as Little Miss NPRA 2018.

Next: Pip riding as she competed for Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon at the Philomath Frolic and Rodeo.

Her mother gave us all the details here:

My friend (designer at Ariana Head Designs) made these for my daughter to compete at Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon and for her to wear during her reign as Little Miss NPRA 2018.  We bought two yards of Pendleton and we were determined to use every piece we could. The dress was made with Pendleton and an aubergine velveteen. Those pictures were taken in fields outside of Pendleton, Oregon during the Round-Up. The vest was made with the same materials and patches added to her jeans which also matched her saddle pad (made by me).

Pendleton by Sunbrella Fabrics

Sunbrella for Pendleton Fabrics

The season for outdoor living is here, and Pendleton is ready with Pendleton by Sunbrella outdoor fabrics.

Sunbrella fabrics made into pillows, tent and chair, set up on the beach!

Pendleton consistently searches out the best partners for collaborations and shared projects. We have been delighted with our partnership with Glenraven on a line of Pendleton-patterned outdoor fabrics. These Pendleton by Sunbrella fabrics are perfect for all outdoor uses, including awnings, furniture, umbrellas, and anything else you can think of.  They also work indoors, for ultra-durable upholstery.

All About Glenraven

Like Pendleton, Glenraven (the company that produces Sunbrella fabrics) is a multi-generational family business. Also like Pendleton, Glenraven is headquartered in the USA. And, again, like Pendleton, they have maintained a strong commitment to weaving in the USA. You can see the Glenraven mill in action in this video.

Pendleton by Sunbrella fabrics use dyed threads for weaving, which means vivid, lasting color. That’s a similiarity to wool, which also takes dye all the way to the core.

One key reason Pendleton has been so proud to work with Glenraven lies in the company’s commitment to sustainability. Any used Sunbrella fabric can be returned to the company for recycling and re-use through their Renaissance program. You can read all about that here: Sustainability and Sunbrella

Did you know you can set a Sunbrella fabric in a bucket of bleach, and it won’t change its color? These fabrics will not run, stain, or fade…ever. The world’s clumsiest person can’t ruin Sunbrella fabrics, though you can watch someone try in this video:

The “Indoor Durability Challenge” will give you an idea of what Sunbrella fabrics can withstand.

Decorating ideas

We use these fabrics in our store designs, and choose them when our stores need awnings, as in our Pendleton store in Eugene, Oregon. They make an impact indoors or out, as you can see in this adorable camping trailer interior by @stagecoachdetaildesign that artfully uses Pendleton by Sunbrella fabrics.

A Camper Redux with Pendleton Wool Seat Covers

Rio Rancho Rules!

Our Rio Rancho fabric is inspiring so many customers, including Leilani Sullivan. Leilani and her husband have done an amazing job refurbishing a camper and making it into a dreamy, fun space that reflects their taste and talent for decorating, cooking and crafting –all while on the road! 

Here are Leilani’s words on the project:

CAMPER-EXTERIOR-2

In the fall of 2016, we purchased a 2002 Jayco Granite Ridge 27 ‘ Class C RV. We spent some time that winter doing a little remodeling: painting the cabinets and counter tops, putting some burlap coffee bean sacks on the fronts and backs of the dining seats, above the cab and in the bathroom, and making new cushion covers and divider curtains for the bedroom and cab.

We camped in it for the next two seasons. We love camping, but didn’t love the carpet at all, as we travel with our dogs and usually have muddy boots from hiking. The fabric I used on my cushion covers was pretty, but not very good quality. So this past winter, we ordered new cushion covers through the Woolen Mill Store.

CAMPER #2

Wow, what a beautiful addition they are! They add a level of class that is rustic, elegant and very durable. We also took the carpet out and put down wood flooring that we made from cedar fence pickets. My husband milled the pickets down to 1/2″ thickness, distressed them, painted them with a vinegar and steel wool mixture to age them, waxed them and installed them in the RV.

CAMPER #3

We removed all the window valances, painted the window frames and then framed them out in the same wood as the floor.  We covered all the walls with the burlap sacks. We also added vinyl flooring that looks like wood to the backsplash, and headboard. We finished the projects by ordering fabric, and making custom window blinds.

CAMPER #1

All of the renovation makes our little RV feel like a homey rustic cabin. It is so inviting.  We love meeting up with friends for camping in the mountains of Colorado and to see the fall colors in Missouri. I know there are a lot of beautiful spots that we hope to see in the next few years.

More camping hobbies

We also have a lot of camping hobbies! What are those? We do some Dutch oven cooking.

DUTCH-OVEN-2

We also make lanterns out of old minnow buckets by drawing scenes on brown paper that we insert into the minnow bucket.

MINNOW-BUCKET

We hang the lanterns from our awnings for ambiance lighting.

SHIRTS

Another hobby is bleach painting on shirts – this is bleach painting on the picnic table at the campground.

Everyone who has seen the interior just loves it, and some are encouraging us to do another camper remodel! We recently purchased a 1974 Avion travel trailer as a project. Hopefully we will be able to have Pendleton help us add beautiful touches to this travel trailer as well.

Thank you, Leilani! This is inspiring. We love the truly handcrafted interior, and hope you’ll let us see your latest project as it unfolds.
