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 nine retail galleries around the state represented on this website, at the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair, Capital Arts Fest, CRAFTED, the Headquarters Exhibition 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.
