Besides all the art available for purchase (or drooling over) when visiting any of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild'll enjoy learning how many of these items are made.

For a simple plant such as flax is turned into a material we know as linen.

....and this is not a simple or fast process.....but it all begins with this humble, yet sturdy plant.

........Which is broken down using what can look like tools of torture!

.....and ultimately woven into stunning coverlets.....

.....and of course we are in the mountains so toe tappin' Blue Grass entertainment is a given!

The Fair concludes this afternoon but watch for announcements about their Oct. 2011 Fair, held at Asheville's Civic Center.
