Are You An Arts & Crafts Groupie Yet?
No, I’m not talking about THAT kind of groupie. To my knowledge there isn’t an Arts and Crafts Movement band…yet (I play drums!). I’m talking about joining up with one of the handful of Arts and Crafts related societies and clubs across the country. From monthly discussion meetings to home and garden tours to special trips and more, these groups exist for people just like you — enthusiastic historians, collectors, business people, home owners and more, from every walk of life — with one common thread, your love of the Arts and Crafts Movement and Revival. Wonder where they’ve been all this time? Well, one may exist in your area! Below is a list of current societies and clubs that we are aware of. Know of others? Please do share this information with us so we can update our listings and spread the word! And if you see one in your area, check it out! You might just discover you have more alike with folks than just that one common Arts and Crafts thread…
