The Roanoke Arts and Crafts Guild was established in 1982 in an effort to provide a market for locally produced arts and crafts. Guild members organized and held the first Guild fair in November of 1982. Guild membership was limited to residents of Martin and Bertie counties. In 1984, membership was opened to include residents of adjacent counties. Since 1996, membership in the Guild is not limited by location.
Artisans interested in being a Guild member are required to submit three samples of their art or craft. The artisans' creations are judged on materials used, workmanship, design, utility, color, and originality.
The Roanoke Arts and Crafts Guild holds its annual Arts and Crafts Guild Fair the second weekend in November. This Fair provides a market for the artisans' creations and gives the Guild members an opportunity to demonstrate their talents and provide new, traditional and revived arts and crafts for the community and fair visitors.
