Handmade Baskets - Unmatched Quality

I started basket weaving in 1998. I was fortunate enough to find a wonderful teacher. She was a taskmaster on precision, technique and shape. Because of this experience I have a life long friend and a craft I enjoy when not quilting. I would be happy to answer questions and like reading your comments. Enjoy!
