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,

You Know You're Addicted to Basket Weaving If...

This has been circulating around the internet. The best I can determine is the original author is Kim Renich, weaver, basket designer and pattern writer. Enjoy this bit of basket humor.

Baskets of Blessings,


You know you're addicted to basket weaving if... by Kim Renich
(Nancy's comments are in parenthesis)
  • You have patterns you bought 2 years ago that you've never made!

  • You've bought the same pattern twice without realizing you already had it!

  • You have more than one tape measure! (and you've snipped a tape measure while cutting stakes)

  • You've snipped a "V" in the tip of your finger while cutting a stake! (I've done this! Yikes it hurt!)

  • You have half finished baskets that you know you'll never finish but can't bear to throw out!

  • You weave until you discover a problem and then go back and read the directions!

  • Your basket supplies get the biggest closet in the house!

  • Your shirts have dye splatters on them!

  • You have so many patterns that you've alphabetized them!

  • You've cut up at least one basket

  • You hope your husband doesn't ask you how much you spent in class that night! (or online at the basket shop)

  • And...You know you're addicted to baskets if every room in your house has a basket in it!
