Church HIll Weavers
Churchill Weavers was established in 1922 by Carroll and Eleanor Churchill. The Churchill's sought to maintain the ancient craft of hand weaving, while benefiting the residents of Berea, Kentucky by providing employment. You can take a free tour of the loom house and visit the unique gallery which features the famous Churchill line as well as works by some of the nation's finest artisans. There is also an outlet room for the best bargains.
What to buy: If you’ve been to Ireland and liked the hand throws and other quilts, then you will probably like Churchill Weavers. The products are so similar, in fact, that Angie wasn’t that impressed with those in Ireland because they looked so much like the stuff at home.
What to pay: Probably a lot. That's why you should check out the outlet room first.

Dulcimers by Warren A. May are traditional, totally functional and beautiful instruments of distinction. They are made of solid woods: Black Walnut, Cherry or Poplar. Each dulcimer has a hand-carved scroll and the tops and backs are book-matched (sawn from the same board with matching grain pattern). An aesthetic look and sound is produced in each instrument.
Each dulcimer is hand-crafted, assembled, carved, sanded, finished and precisely tuned for the best sound and ease of playing. Each dulcimer is signed, dated, and numbered. It has a lifetime guarantee to original owner on construction and playability.
What to buy: I, personally, have owned two of his dulcimers in my lifetime. To show you how well liked his work is, when someone broke into my home last fall my dulcimer was the only thing taken. If you catch him in a good mood, he’ll play a bit for you and give impromptu lessons. You should really hear him play “Sound of Silence.”
What to pay: Expect to pay around $200 for the least expensive. He'll also custom design them.
Address: 110 Center Street
