Six western North Carolina nonprofits are among 28 state organizations that will share $5.85 million in grants from the N.C. Community Development Initiative over the next three years aiming to spark economic growth and job creation in some of the state’s most distressed areas.
Western North Carolina is no stranger to the craft biz: We have more crafters per capita than almost any other region in the country, and an Appalachian tradition that pairs creativity with hard work. But how does that passion for crafts translate into good business practices? Regional nonprofit Appalachian Women Entrepreneurs provides a helping hand.
A slideshow look at some of work on display today, June 26, at the WNC Craft, Architecture and Design Expo at the N.C. Arboretum. The event is put on by Handmade in America and ends today. The work of local crafters and artists is displayed in 11 separate vignettes, such as kitchen, bedroom, livingroom.
