Southern Exposure

What a sweet treat that Anne of Southernist exposed a little of what the artsy and crafty folk here in NC are up to. Aside from Craft Attack talk, she also makes reference to some other local goodness such as Penland School of Craft, the Southern Highland Craft Guild, and of course Asheville Etsy as well as our fellow NC Street Teams.

Thanks Anne!
