Weavers of the Southern Highlands

 Author: Philis Alvic  Category: Book  Publisher: University Press of Kentucky  Published: 2003

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.
