Southern Highland Craft Guild

The Southern Highland Craft Guild has been shaping the creative economy for 90 years. Exhibiting handmade crafts of North Carolina and the Southeast, the Guild cultivates commerce for craftspeople in the Appalachian regions with four retail locations and an online shop. Today, it is one of the strongest craft organizations in the country--representing just over 800 makers in 293 counties from nine states, hosting 5 educational events and two Craft Fairs each year. What started as a network of the area’s creativity and arts to boost income for craftspeople during the Great Depression, has become an iconic fixture of the craft revival movement.
