History of Mountain Artisans

Founded in 1968, Mountain Artisans was organized as a nonprofit cooperative quilting business, owned and operated by the women who made the patchwork creations and formed by a group of idealistic women, including Sharon Percy Rockefeller. 

Mountain Artisans received the prestigious Coty American Fashion Critics’ Award in 1972 for fashion and home furnishings with a citation that recognized the cooperative as helping to spur the American crafts movement

Dissolved in 1978, the Mountain Artisans brand and name was revived and trademarked by Rebecca Stelling in 2001.
