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

Feature a Friend Friday - Sue Morello with Sheldon Farm Baskets, Basket Making, Basketry

Dear Friends,

I would like to introduce you to basket weaver Sue Morello from Sheldon Farm Baskets in Barre, Massachusetts. Sue has been weaving for over 20 years. She is a retired elementary school teacher and has taught basket weaving in the past. Now she has a brand new online store that just launched where she is selling her beautiful baskets.

Sue makes a shaker style basket and uses ash in her weaving. Many of her baskets have painted decorative embellishments. It is Sue's dear friend who does the painting and they collaborate together to make these great pieces.

I also have to take a moment to mention their beautiful farm where the weaving is done. Take a look at their home. It sets on 75 luscious acres that include a pond, a peach orchard and acres of raspberries. (Can I come for a visit please?)

Please pop on over to Sheldon Farm Baskets and take a look around. Remember Christmas is coming up and these would make some perfect gifts.

Enjoy!

Nancy

Sue has such gorgeous baskets! As always, I couldn't resist, and I bought the "Chickadee Basket" in the picture you posted. Chickadees are my husband's favorite bird, and I love the contrast provided by the black color. I totally wish I had these kinds of painting skills! It would add so much to my own baskets!
