Description:
Just across the street from the Omni Grove Park Inn lies a destination unlike any other: Grovewood Village, housed in the historic weaving and woodworking complex of Biltmore Industries - a groundbreaking enterprise in the history of American craft and textiles, with ties to George and Edith Vanderbilt, Edwin Wiley Grove, and Fred Loring Seely. In its heyday, Biltmore Industries had a total of 40 looms in steady operation, producing bolts of some of the highest quality homespun fabric in the country, worn by U.S. presidents, first ladies, and many American icons. Learn the story of Biltmore Industries on a guided history tour, offered Wednesday - Saturday at 1pm during April – December. The tour includes a visit to the historic Dye House in Grovewood Village (usually closed to the public), where the original looms, carding machines, mule spinners, and dye vats used to make Biltmore Handwoven Homespun can still be viewed. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and are geared towards adults. There is no charge to take the tour, but donations are appreciated. Spots are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Maximum 25 people per tour. Meet your guide at the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum in Grovewood Village.

Our discussion will center around themes of the exhibition and book, Lines: A Brief History by Tim Ingold. Refreshments will be served. No reading necessary prior to the event. Free and open to the public. Register at https://linessalon.eventbrite.com/ About the book: What do walking, weaving, observing, storytelling, singing, drawing and writing have in common? The answer is that they all proceed along lines. In Lines: A Brief History, Tim Ingold imagines a world in which everyone and everything consists of interwoven or interconnected lines and lays the foundations for a completely new discipline: the anthropological archaeology of the line.

Find your one and only dog at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. Brother Wolf will host its first single dog speed dating event on Saturday, July 1, from 6-8 p.m. at its Adoption Center located at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville. Dogs participating in this event prefer to be the only animal in a home, and are seeking a family that wishes to give all their love and affection to just one perfect pet. Potential adopters seeking a match will meet with a Brother Wolf Adoption Counselor, and answer questions about what they are looking for in a companion. They will then be matched with three dogs for a 15-minute “blind date” on campus scheduled at specific times. Dates will involve treats, snuggling and playing with toys. Between dates, guests will be welcome to enjoy family-friendly games and mingle with members of the community. This event will be free and open to the public.
