Carolina Gourds and Seeds has some very nice gourds. Harry Hurley is the owner of the business but alas he has decided to ease his way out of the business and is not growing anymore but he has many gourds still in his sheds. He is located in Fuquay Varina (about 45 minutes south of Raleigh). Cherokee Gourd Gathering will be in your area the first weekend in June and Ghost Creek will be a vendor there. Ghost Creek is in South Carolina and has some wonderful gourds that match your description. The Martins are wonderful to do business with and you can call them to describe what you are looking for and be assured that they will not send you an awful gourd. I do not know any professional growers in your part of the State but maybe someone who sees this post can answer better than I have done so.
I sell gourd crafting supplies: Fiebing leather dyes, Memories alcohol inks, gourd mini saws, gourd crafting books, gold leafing and small embellishments. My business name is: Gourdamental. I do not yet have a website but I will be traveling to gourd shows/festivals in the Southeast. If you need any of those supplies I can provide you with more information. My email is: gourdamental@earthlink.net. Phone: (919) 382-8260.
Happy gourding: Shelly

Shelly, I live in the southwestern mountains in Tuckasegee. I have a real challenge in purchasing gourds. Presently, I go to Georgia to get my gourds. I prefer 45"+ bowl gourds, curley dippers and large/medium gourds. Do you know of any suppliers in NC? Thanks.

Greetings North Carolina gourders,
I am the newly elected president of the Alpha Chapter of the gourd society. This years festival will be September 11-12 (as always the weekend after Labor Day). Our theme is Woodland gourds. We will be moving from the Kerr Scott building to Holhouser Building at the NC State Fair Grounds.
