Today, the Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands is held twice every year, in July and October, in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, at Harrah's Cherokee Center. It brings together hundreds of makers in what has become a key event for craft enthusiasts. These events are unique in that they offer attendees the opportunity to connect with the artists by purchasing directly from them. In an age of mass production and global imports, the connection to fine American craft and the individual maker is often lost, but it is more significant than ever.

I didn't learn anything new in particular, but I did make some purchases and find a few cool new sellers. This year there were not many vendors, but I think it was generally well done, and I would attend again.
