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

YouTube Video #4 is up--Twining a Keeper Row

Seems like every time I put a video up, it shows the dorkiest (is that a word?) expression on my face even though I start off with a smile. Oh well.

Here is video #4 and it shows twining a keeper row around a rectangular base. I'll show twining a round basket base another time.

One thing I failed to mention on the video is that my reed has been soaked for about 5 minutes. Both my basket base and my round reed have been soaked. I hope you all know to do that so on the video it goes without saying. This video runs about 7 minutes.

Have a wonderful day and baskets of blessing,

Love,

Nancy

I haven't watched the video, (takes a long time to load w/my connection) yet, but I think most of us are our own worst critics You don't look dorky at all, Nancy. The videos are much appreciated. :)

Hey Nancy have you ever done any research on baskets of Biblical Times? I need to make some for our Passion Play props. Any suggestions on shapes and materials besides grass?
