A Legacy of Weaving

Crossnore Weavers, located on our Avery campus, was created to preserve the Appalachian art of hand-weaving, to give an economic opportunity to women, and to promote Crossnore Communities for Children through the sale of beautiful hand-woven goods all over the world.

WEAVING CLASSES

Weaving Classes are offered to the public three times per year on our Avery campus. These classes are dedicated to teaching traditional Appalachian Mountain Weaving to all who are interested in learning.

The course is $500 and includes all materials you will need to take the class. Classes run Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm. At the end of the session you will have handwoven placemats and a table runner for your personal collection, all woven by you!

The Crossnore Weavers invite you to come into their weaving studio to learn all you desire about weaving in the traditional style.

Women of the Weaving Room

Between the years of 1937 and the present, more than 50 women have learned, taught, and practiced weaving in the weaving room at Crossnore.
