imagery for Queer Appalachia crafting

Queer Appalachia will share work, including intricate detailed embroideries, hand carvings, zines and more.
Learn about the history of Appalachian maker culture. Because Appalachians had to make everything they wanted (or else it didn't exist) function came before aesthetics every time.

Discover how Appalachian maker culture has become another extractive economy just like coal. Appalachian art is an important export reaching an increasingly wide audience.
