This is the home of the Directory of Traditional American Crafts, the showcase of the artisans working in traditional techniques, materials, and style who have been selected as the best in America by a jury of museum curators, scholars, and other experts.

FEATURED ARTIST

We’d like to introduce some of the artists selected for the 2013 Directory of Traditional American Crafts in the category Textiles or needlework.

Tish Bachleda has been committed to perfecting the craft of creating hand hooked wool rugs for more than a decade. Although she honors the traditions prevalent in early living, Bachleda applies her dyed color choices and primitive-inspired design skills to ensure her commissioned pieces display beautifully within homes of the 21st century, and with proper care, will last for generations to come.
