The WNC craft economy

The Western North Carolina Craft industry isn’t easy to quantify. But in 2008, several area organizations worked together to produce a report — the WNC Craft Index. Researchers took a holistic view of the economics of the crafts industry, examining many sectors, collecting data and administering surveys.  The report showed significant increases in almost every aspect of the industry since the last study in 1995. Below, we have selected key data that shows how the craft industry effects our region. — by Steph Guinan

    This is a great article, and interesting statistics.

    It clearly shows that WNC has to promote tourism and market the arts and crafts economy.

    We need more “consumers”
