Mrs. Napoleon Bonaparte Ashe supervised several people in their weaving and rug making. She filed a questionnaire as an individual but was also treated as a producing center because of the number of workers she employed. Questionnaires like this one were the raw data for the exploratory study of the Craft Education Project, a joint undertaking by the Southern Highland Handicraft Guild and the Southern Highlanders. Marian Heard was hire to oversee the planning phase that involved visiting artists and determining the needs of the craftworkers. Her results, often referred to as "The Heard Report," were published as the "Report of an exploratory study lookng toward a craft education project ...." The preliminary project led to an educational program funded by the General Education Board.
