In this bicentennial year, the' nation is looking back to the pioneers who courageously battled an unfriendly environment to bring civilization to a rugged frontier. The Ozarks were long isolated from the main migrations westward and ; the , highways that followed went around the mountains. It is therefore virtually a seedbed of folk culture that was preserved because of this isolation. In 1982 the Ozark". Foothill; Craft Guild 1 began, a-movement to revive and preserve the folk crafts of.;the mountains The guild eventually became a state wide organization with 350 members. The G'jild has since become widley known - f o r its c r a f t shows ' and relai marketing activities in its effort lo .economically - help mounta.ii craftsmen. The recognition o e a r l y values and skills that vere worthy of preservation receded the .present bicen- ennial emphasis Jby 15 years. 'On April 23-25. the Guild will sponsor Us 14th annual spring show and sale on Guild property located two miles north of Mountain View. Martha Crocker, guild president, says some 100 craftsmen are expected foi the three-day event. She is 'a natural materials crafts person, pro: ducing · plaues by using nuts, cones and forest products. She .says, "Our pioneer demonstrations such as chair caning, smithery. leather work quilting, doll making, spinning and weaving ~ are always popular Our crafts people like to discuss and e^cplain their crafts. We have dozens of types of ]crafts but some are more contemporary in design and construction." Mrs. Crocker said food would be available on the grounds and folk music pecformances are planned. Asked' about Ihe change to the fourth weekend in April this year, Mrs. Crocker said; "Since the third weekend fell on Easter, we felt this might . h i n d e r many of the families who attend our shows. We hope "area residents will visit the big tents to see our fair. The Sylamore Creek Craft Shop, our newest retail outlet, is located on (he same grounds as the fair."
