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,

Nancy

Craft Show Reminder "It's tomorrow" and a Basket


I wanted to remind everyone in the Albuquerque area about the craft show where I will be displaying my baskets and taking class sign-ups.

It is tomorrow, Sunday Feb. 9th at Holy Family Church, 562 Atrisco S.W., Albuquerque, NM. from 9:00 to 3:30.

If you are in the area I would be thrilled to have you stop by and say "HI" to me. There are certain to be some wonderful handmade items as well as delicious baked goods.
This grocery bag basket is quite different. When weaving you "always" start at the base and weave upward toward the top. Well, never say "always" because rules are made to be broken. This basket has no base. I started weaving on the sides of this basket! Check it out as there is a rim at the top and bottom of the basket. There is a notched handle that is used to hang the basket on the wall. It is hanging on my pantry wall and is a very well used basket.
Happy Weaving and Don't forget about the craft show.
Love,
Nancy
