There are events that take place locally, there are events that take place regionally, but rarely does an event take place locally, regionally, and nationally. On October 4th American Craft Week is one of the events that breaks the mold by stretching across all fifty states. Fortunately for us, that very much includes Western North Carolina.
For four years American Craft Week has celebrated the tradition and potential of American crafts. Its encouraged consumers to celebrate the talent and quality of American craftsfolk by buying American. Its spread the beauty of American crafts.
