Prince Edward Island, Canada has long been celebrated for its strong sense of place. Historically, Islanders have been a self-sufficient people who respect and appreciate the traditions of the past.
The Prince Edward Island Crafts Council was formed in 1965 to represent the handcraft sector on the Island, and was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1975.
The mission of the Crafts Council is to promote the making and acceptance of quality handcrafted items through the provision of programs and services; to encourage and assist those who are creating and producing the future heirlooms of Prince Edward Island.
The PEICC invites you to help fill an increasing demand for quality, Island-made, hand-crafted products; to keep informed about activities in the craft sector and to become part of a growing community of dedicated craftspeople.
