Our Beautiful Banner & a VIDEO

Fabric Art is ART

When you visit our store, you’ll see a one-of-a-kind banner celebrating the materials and craft that is the heart of the Woolen Mill Store.

The cashwrap at the pendleton Woolen Mill Store with a veiw of a large fabric banner showing Mt. Hood.

Measuring 8′ x 12′, the banner was designed and created by Pendleton’s Marketing team. The design is based on the Mt Hood graphic on a vintage shirt box, which is also used in our current Born in Oregon logo.

How We Did It – and there’s a video!

The pattern was enlarged onto a full-sized paper pattern using a slide projector.

This pattern was cut apart and used to trace the shape of the mountain and the shoreline.

The paper pattern and a selection of materials used for the banner

The sky and lake shape are made from the same fabric – the face and reverse of a wool denim. The 150+ stylized trees were cut from a wide range of plaids, stripes, jacquards, and solid fabric, including our Sunbrella outdoor fabrics.

The richly colored fabrics, all in shades of blue, were appliqued together with a fusible bonding, and then machine quilted with a layer of wool batting and a solid cotton backing fabric. This secured all the fabric layers and created a diamond patterned stitch design over the entire surface. The quilting was done by Nancy at Just Quilting in Portland. You can find her at @justquilting on Instagram.

Once quilted, the layers of needle felted trees and the logo were added on top, and the banner was bound on all sides in felt by store staff. The logo was created using 3-D logo letters wrapped in wool yarn and sewn to the sky area of the banner. Shading on the lake is created with airbrushed fabric paint, the only element not sold at the Woolen Mill Store. The larger trees at the bottom, are created by freehand needle felting.

As Promised…the Video

Here’s a behind-the-scenes movie of the process.

This is a celebration of hand crafting, and a fitting salute to our quality materials and the work that our customers create. Here’s a closer view, and we hope you’ll visit us to see it in person soon.

Inside, there are always finishing touches. We’re preparing the classroom area for the resumption of classes, and adding shelves and bins to accommodate all the wonderful new supplies we have for you here at the Woolen Mill Store.

Oregon Home, Miller Paint, and Pendleton’s Palette

Down to Earth

Pendleton was excited to help with a recent feature in Oregon Home Magazine, working with Miller Paint to showcase the power of earthy neutrals. According to Apartment Therapy, “A neutral is a color without much intensity or saturation—a color that’s lacking in color, if you will, which generally goes with everything. Think tans, beiges, ivories, creams, whites, blacks, and grays.” Oregon Home included more soothing earth tones, while keeping the palette gentle.

Our Home Store staff was part this project (thanks, team!), bringing their Pendleton design expertise to play in choosing blankets that show the softer side of Pendleton patterns.

According to the feature:

This season’s color palettes draw inspiration from the ground up. Earthy is in. “Whites are shifting from bright and stark to earthy tones touched with raw umber,” says Puji Sherer, director of color marketing for Portland-based Miller Paint. “Grays are giving way to gentle browns and beiges. Even though Pendleton designs are typically very angular and dynamic, the subdued color palette in this one makes it easy to live with in any interior environment.” Oregon Home collaborated with Miller Paint and Pendleton Home on this design for a cozy, on-trend gathering space.

We agree. The power of this palette is soothing and understated, but still strong. Our geometric patterns allow for all kinds of subtle colorplay.

Some of our favorite patterns tie in with this palette.

The article featured three beautiful Pendleton blankets; Sandhills, White Sands, and Wyeth Trail. But we have some gorgeous fabrics in-stock in this palette.
