The Scrap Exchange in Durham Expands 16 Dec 2016, 2:48 pm



The Scrap Exchange in Durham is a creative reuse center and the perfect place to create art.  This nonprofit organization just celebrated their 25th anniversary.  Their mission is to promote creativity, environmental awareness, and community through the reuse of materials.

The Scrap Exchange allows you to shop for unusual supplies and materials that are perfect for your next creative project.

They teach classes in skills such as sewing, knitting, embroidery, crocheting, and custom framing.

To support their environmentally friendly cause, this nonprofit does accept donations.

For a small fee of $5, visitors can use their "Make N Take Room" which allows for an hour and a half of self-directed activity using the materials in the space and permits you to take home what you make.

Once a time is scheduled to become familiar with their "Design Center," trained visitors can use sewing machines, a die cut machine, a button maker, and a multi-lingual reference library with books on art and craft topics.

For those wanting to drop in, please call their retail store at (919) 688-6960 to confirm availability before arriving.

The Scrap Exchange's Design Center can be reserved for celebrations with at least three weeks' notice after submitting your application.  Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, and book clubs.

Sharon C. from Spokane, Washington gave us a 5-star Yelp review and wrote, "Monica and Daniel have put their hearts and souls into creating a very special home which they share with lucky adventurers who happen upon their Durham, NC B&B! Looking for somewhere nice to celebrate my husband's birthday, I located Morehead Manor on the Internet and we gave it a try.  The decor, charming atmosphere, and comfortable furnishings in this 1910, 3-story mansion make you forget you are less than a mile away from downtown Durham with all it has to offer!  Lovely breakfasts prepared with thoughtful accommodation to personal likes and needs.  We would happily go back!!!"

Zevmom from Denver, Colorado's 5-star Trip Advisor review reads, "You pull up to a lovely, stately property then meet Monica and feel welcomed and right at home.  Staying at this B&B was an experience we won't quickly forget.  The breakfast was amazing (even gluten free options!).  The accommodations were comfortable, spotless and just casual enough to feel welcoming without feeling stuffy.  I loved the art work that filled the lodge.  Morehead Manor is walking distance to lots of interesting restaurants and shopping, and very easy to drive to other parts of the city from this location.  But the very best part of our time here was the fascinating discussions with the proprietors, Monica and Daniel.  They were so generous and open; the quick friendship will be the lasting treasure.  We look forward to returning each year as we visit our son who is in college nearby."

The 5-star BedandBreakfast.com review from Jeannette and Neill from New York City and South Hampton, New York reports, "The best B&B in Durham.  Monica accommodated my gluten free request and prepared delicious gluten free waffles for breakfast.  The Magnolia Room is very romantic and the entire Inn is filled with warmth, charm, and great hospitality by the gracious Innkeepers Monica and Daniel."

Durham Is Home To 5 Famous Films 2 Dec 2016, 10:57 am



Durham is home to five famous films.  Of course, the most famous film is Bull Durham.  This baseball blockbuster movie stars Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Robbins.  Released in 1988, it is usually listed as one of the best sports movies of all times.  In fact, Sports Illustrated magazine named it the most popular sports movie of all time.

The film focuses on a star pitcher and a veteran catcher playing for the Durham Bulls.  The most popular minor league baseball team today. The film was shot at the ballpark that was home to the Durham Bulls at the time as well as various houses and other places throughout The Bull City.

Brainstorm is a 1983 science fiction thriller about a group of researchers who invent a way to record the physical and emotional experiences of others so that others can experience them as well. Problems arise when the potential for abuse is discovered and things get out of control.

This movie starring Christopher Walken and Natalie Wood has scenes shot at Research Triangle Park and Duke University.  Brainstorm also gained notoriety as Wood's last film, as she sadly passed away during its production.

The Handmaid's Tale is an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's famous novel.  Starring Faye Dunaway, Robert Duvall, and Natasha Richardson, this 1990 movie set in a dystopian future, tells the story of a young woman who is able to bear children (an increasingly rare trait) and the fallout she faces from a totalitarian regime.  The novel was set at Harvard, but the movie was shot at Duke University and other locations around Durham including on the streets near Brightleaf Square.

Kiss the Girls is the film adaptation of James Patterson's novel of the same name.  This movie was set and filmed in Durham and the surrounding area.  Morgan Freeman plays a forensic psychologist (Alex Cross) whose niece is kidnapped.  Ashley Judd plays a woman who escaped from the same kidnapper and helps him on the case.  In its first five months in theaters in 1997, this film grossed over $60 million alone.

The movie Arthur Newman starring Colin Firth, Emily Blunt, and Ann Heche, is about a man and woman who leave their pasts by taking on the identities of the owners of the empty homes they break into.  During this process, they begin to explore what it is they ran away from.  Released in 2012, this was filmed in part at Durham's North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, along with other locations in the Triangle.

Durham is also home to several popular film festivals including the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.  Durham is a visually diverse city that can simulate a number of climates and locales.

  • Gothic look of Duke University's West Campus
  • Historic Durham neighborhoods and homes
  • Distinctive, neo-Romanesque brick work of the turn-of-the-century tobacco warehouses
  • Pastoral river and lake fed countryside of North Durham
  • 1920s and 1930s look of Downtown Durham
  • Futuristic look of Research Triangle Park's business complexes
Guests of Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast in Durham are welcome to visit these iconic locations during their stay with us.  Each morning our guests enjoy a fresh and delicious gourmet breakfast. We look forward to welcoming you.
