Joy in the Mountains
Came across this book, Joy in the Mountains, published in 1977 (40 years ago!). It’s about all the attractions in the “tri-state mountain corner of n.c.-tenn.-va.”
The pages here (click to enlarge) are from the chapter titled “beautiful hands, busy fingers” that's about all the crafts in the region. There are some familiar names here - McWhirter Pottery, Jim Sockwell’s Pottery, Toe River “Craftsmen” - and many more that aren’t familiar to me but maybe are to some of you?
