Charm magazine has a soft spot for Heartisans Marketplace in downtown Longview. This nonprofit organization operates a store featuring gifts and products made in the store’s studios, with sales benefiting Heartisans’ job readiness program for unemployed women in the community.

We think this organization is planting seeds that are producing beautiful fruit, which is why it was fitting for this Charm magazine fashion feature to be staged among the beautiful flowers at Ellis Home & Garden in Longview.

Thanks to these Heartisans volunteers for modeling four perfect summer ensembles from Morgan Abbigail in Longview: Renee Robertson, president of the Heartisans board of directors; Marsha Whitfield, who volunteers in the retail store; Diane Wilson, a sewing studio volunteer; and Brenda Thornhill, who volunteers in the monogram/embroidery studio.
