May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Research Day

I haven't had a chance to do any weaving today but have spent it doing other things towards my business. First off, I drove to the state fairgrounds and entered some of my baskets and one scrapbook page. They only have two basket weaving divisions and I entered in both. One was general basketry and the other Southwest basket weaving. I think it would be so neat to win a ribbon. The fair starts in a week so I hope to find out soon!

After that I went to the Westside branch of New Mexico Community College. I was wanting to see if there were any classes that would be of benefit to me. I'll have to ask Mike about a Windows class, but I may know everything that they would be teaching in that one. They have a few entrepreneurial classes but they are all way down south and I'm not willing to make the drive, at least not at this time in my business venture. There is nothing available for home business.

Next I did some research on the internet and I found New Mexico Small Business Association. They have free, or inexpensive classes! They are an overview and are for one evening each. Yea! They looked perfect. I checked my calendar and wouldn't you know, two of them are scheduled for when we are at the scout campout. One I could attend on Sun. evening and it is devoted to marketing. I plan to take that class. Well, I bookmarked that site and will be checking it often.
