50 Years of Craft

50 Years of Craft

Do you have a craft story?

50 Years of Craft was created as a place where people come and share their stories and experiences with craft. In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we’ll weave together a history of Tennessee Craft (formerly known as TACA – the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists). Our hope is that 50 Years of Craft will help build community, encourage positive connections and honor craft tradition in a new way.

Anyone can join in! Your story doesn’t have to be about Tennessee Craft, but most of the questions will be craft-centered.

Making Paper Fans

This may be my first craft experience. We were always coloring and often layered crayons onto paper and creating patterns, scratching through. Then one day we accordion-folded them and added a bobby pin so we could use them as fans. Then we had the bright idea of selling them for a nickel to our neighbors, […]


…It Nearly Rained Away the Craft Fair

May 2009 – wow, that was a LOT of rain! I’m pretty sure I saw somebody with a boat…of course the result of the rain and the people was mud!
