Folk Art Center's New Shop Manager | Southern Highland Craft Guild Skip to content

Our brick & mortar stores are closed, but our online shop is still in operation. We are offering free shipping and curbside pick-up at our Tunnel Road location by appointment only. We will continue to evaluate a potential re-opening date as we closely monitor the status of COVID-19. Group events scheduled through June have been cancelled. Check our website or Facebook page for the latest information.

Kelly Yost

The Guild welcomes Kelly Yost, the new manager of the shop located in the Folk Art Center. Kelly is originally from Kent, Ohio and graduated from Kent State University. She was employed at Mountain Made, a craft shop in the Grove Arcade in Asheville, where she received "a wonderful introduction to the arts and crafts of the area." Before moving to the mountains in 2017, Kelly resided in South Carolina where she worked in space and facility planning. There she focused primarily on designing healing spaces for health care facilities. She hopes to use her previous work experiences to create a shopping environment that engages our visitors through all their senses.
