Chapters of the Traditional Small Craft Association

Fort Worden MessaboutThe Traditional Small Craft Association is international, but provides for local groups (called chapters) which provide a vehicle for face-to-face activities in their areas. Chapters run events, hold meetings, sponsor youth groups, and build boats as a group effort. There are currently 27 active chapters, and several others organizing.
