Weavers of the Southern Highlands

Philis Alvic
University Press of Kentucky

This is the history of weaving centers in the Appalachian Mountains in the early part of the 20th century. The centers enabled women to earn money in a largely subsistence economy. Individual chapters are devoted to the Fireside Industries at Berea College in KY, Arrowcraft started by Pi Beta Phi at Gatlinburg, TN, Penland Weavers and Potters in NC, and the Rabun Weavers of northeastern GA.
