Southern Highland Craft Guild

The Southern Highland Craft Guild, which is headquartered in the Blue Ridge Parkway’s Folk Art Center in Asheville, is a non-profit educational organization with a membership of more than 700 crafts artists living and working in the mountain regions of nine southeastern states. Since its inception in 1930, the Guild has worked to instill and maintain standards of excellence in the design and workmanship of crafts taught, produced and marketed in the southern Appalachian region through its exhibits, educational programs, special events, archives and libraries, and retail shops.
