Louie Bluie Crafters

Our crafters are skilled in the hand-me-down traditions of these Cumberland Mountains as well as those with more contemporary appeal. They include basket weaving, wooden toys and games, handmade bird houses, woodworking and carving, stitchery, rug hooking, hand-painted china, and countless objects skillfully and imaginatively transformed.
