In contemporary Kentucky terminology c. 2021, many craft interest groups call themselves a "guild." For example, here is a listing of many Kentucky-based "Quilt Guilds."
But in the medieval period (C.E. 1000–1500), guilds were trade associations. In addition to regional or local merchant guilds, there were medieval-era craft guilds, which were occupational associations, usually comprised of all the artisans and craftsmen in a particular branch of industry or commerce.
There were, for instance, guilds of weavers, dyers, and fullers in the wool trade; and of masons and architects in the building trades; and there were guilds of painters, metalsmiths, blacksmiths, bakers, butchers, leatherworkers, soapmakers, and so on.See: www.britannica.com/topic/guild-trade-association
