“As designer and maker, I strive to create clever, flattering apparel and accessories that truly come alive when they are worn. I regularly witness this alchemy between women and my work; both are changed for the better. My hand-dyed blue silk alights her steely eyes, my printed imagery evokes her own memories, my figure-friendly contours make her feel attractive and stylish. Three particular elements– shibori-dyed silk, screen printed bamboo jersey, and smart styling– define my signature style. I use a modern take on shibori (machine-stitching resist motifs) to engineer pattern on the garment, therefore on the female figure. Screen printing my illustrations and intricate papercuts adds personal content, embedding stories among the stitches. Technical components become creative opportunities: pockets in lapels, decorative stitching as support structure, bindings and ruffles as unexpected pops of color. As my mastery matures, onward goes the evolution of fine design for stylish women.”

The best part—if you’ve slashed your personal entertainment budget, several of their cocktails are very budget friendly, as is mainstream beer.

Saffron Fine Foods

Saffron is widely known as the world’s most expensive spice, but what led us to naming our company Saffron Fine Foods is the care that goes into harvesting the spice. Saffron is the stamen of the crocus flower, harvested by hand with only 3 to 5 stamens per flower. The stamens are then dried and packaged, and sent to the spice shelves of restaurants and kitchens all over the world.

Saffron Fine Foods founder Miki Kilpatrick brings years of experience in events and hospitality – plus a special love for weddings – to everything we do. Saffron came to be when she decided that instead of finding the “right person” to work for, it was time to work for herself! Miki is joined by event pro Terri Terrell, who was Saffron’s executive chef and now serves as Catering Director.

We believe that every gathering of people where food is shared should be considered a celebration. The act of breaking bread historically signifies the setting aside of individual differences and embracing the common need to satisfy hunger. It is our goal to provide food for such occasions – meals that not only nourish the body, but also entertain the senses and warm your soul!

With this in mind, we craft thoughtful, delicious and deeply local menus to turn any occasion into a special feast. And thanks to our expert logistical, staffing and culinary planning support, you can kick back and enjoy the festivities!

Need a few more reasons to choose Saffron Fine Foods? Another thing that makes us unique is our “greening” expertise. Saffron offers on-site waste disposal, including composting and recycling, for every event we cater. With proper planning any event can minimize its footprint. We also use local products, support other local small businesses and contribute to local non-profit organizations like ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project). We believe being a part of our community is part of being a responsible business, plus it’s just more fun!
