Founded in 1932, the League of NH Craftsmen is one of the oldest and most prestigious craft organizations in the country. The League was formed during the years of the Depression to help New Hampshire craftspeople make a living through difficult financial times, through education and by building an audience and market for fine handmade craft. The League continues this mission today.
Craft approved by the League's rigorous Standards Program is presented and sold through a network of seven retail galleries around the state, at the Annual Craftsmen's Fair, at The Gallery and at other League sponsored events. Due to its high standards for quality craft, the League, through these very same programs, invites the public to interact with and learn about the fine craft produced in New Hampshire. In addition, the League supports community-based craft education programs throughout the state.
The League of NH Craftsmen is a nonprofit, tax exempt organization. Donations, memberships and grant funding to the organization are tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
The mission of the League of NH Craftsmen is to encourage, nurture and promote the creation, use and preservation of fine contemporary and traditional craft through the inspiration and education of artists and the broader community.
