Executive Director - League of New Hampshire Craftsmen Miriam Carter has worked for over 30 years as a self-employed artist and enjoys a national reputation and market for her groundbreaking work with fiber. As a fourth-generation feltmaker, she has been committed to the growth and refinement of the craft of feltmaking and its place in the world of wearable art. In 2017, Miriam stepped into the role of Executive Director of the League of NH Craftsmen. Her work has included upgrading and strengthening the League to ensure the continued sustainability of this venerable organization. She has worked on behalf of the members of the 90-year-old organization to expand opportunities to show and sell their work. In her tenure, she has sought opportunities to inform the general public about the value and tradition of handmade craft. Her greatest reward in this new position comes from daily advocating on behalf of her fellow craftsmen and supporting the field of craft.
