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,

Lidded Yarn Basket

Did you hear the news?  Julie has her patterns now for sale over at  Here is the yarn basket I wove from her pattern as I tested it.  I think it turned out beautiful!  The lid is interesting as it has a hole in the center of it for the yarn to come out.  Very clever.  It is plenty wide around to hold a large skein of yarn upright inside it.  A bit of warning to you new weavers, this is an intermediate pattern so get a few baskets under your belt and then give this fun one a try. 
I've been about to bust wanting to show you these baskets and have been waiting patiently for them to officially go on sale before showing the pictures.
I tested a couple other patterns out for Julie and I will be showing those to you very soon.
Happy Weaving!
