PEI Crafts Council



The PEI Crafts Council: Supporting creative entrepreneurs since 1965

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.

Our Mission:

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.

The PEI Crafts Council is pleased to announce that we are now able to accept your donation on-line.  Funds received will go directly to the PEICC Professional Development Fund, which is used each year to fund workshops run by the Council for its members, and for professional development of individual members who apply for funding assistance to help with the costs of courses, conferences and exhibitions. The applications are reviewed and approved by a panel of professional crafters and are awarded on an annual basis at the AGM.
