Formed in 1966, our goal is to contribute to the advancement, development, and appreciation of arts and handicrafts of all kinds. Giving back to the community, providing educational programs and representing the Tennessee region are just a few of the rewarding benefits we provide to the community and our members. As membership continues to grow we are excited and proud to have so many talented artists working in a variety of media as part of Foothills Craft Guild.
Welcome – Get Creative With Us!
We are pleased you are here and have an interest in all we have to offer. Foothills Craft Guild was organized in 1966 and incorporated in 1968, chartered as an educational, non-profit corporation.
Our purpose is to encourage and promote the development and appreciation of art, handicrafts, and high standards of workmanship, to conduct educational programs for the community, and to sponsor and hold fine craft shows, exhibitions, fairs, and demonstrations; just as the group of craftsmen had in mind when they took the group to a professional level in 1968.
I just love doing this show. This is my hometown show. It gives people an opportunity to buy local, I see lots of friends, people are excited about it, it’s easy and free parking for customers and it’s an easy show to set up for. I could be doing another guild show in North Carolina that weekend but I’d rather do this one. There are artists here who are nationally known, and I’m proud to be a part of it. This is a relaxing show for me to do. I always look forward to it. – Wendy Seaward, Member
This show far surpassed the so-called “fine craft” shows in our area. – A couple visiting from Michigan
