The Southern Highland Craft Guild has been recognized for seven decades as an industry leader in promoting the crafts of the Southern Highland region. Membership in the organization has always been regarded as an achievement in one’s chosen craft. Its active juried membership of over 900 craftspeople come from a nine-state region that includes counties within the Appalachian mountain area of Kentucky, Tennessee, the Virginias, the Carolinas, Georgia, Maryland and Alabama. These craftspeople produce both traditional and contemporary objects. The Guild offers its members a world-class marketing opportunity.Read More
Born and raised in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, I have 200 years of mountain heritage teeming in my blood.
