Welcome to the Southern Highland Craft Guild
Since 1930, artists from Maryland to Alabama have come together to create a network and market for mountain craftspeople. Today, Guild membership stands at more than 900 artisans selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.

I was first taught basketry by my mother, Mae Taylor. Her forte is ribbed baskets and Nantucket-style baskets. With her help, I learned to make egg baskets, then other kinds of ribbed baskets. From there, I branched into splint basketry and wicker. Today, I weave a variety of basket styles - in many sizes, shapes and colors!
