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

An Update on The Basket Book


Do you all remember when I reviewed "The Basket Book" by Lyn Syler? You can read my full review HERE. It is one of those books for the beginner to advanced basket weaver that you can and WILL go back to time and time again for inspiration and instruction.

The illustrator of the book, Carolyn Kemp, sent me a lovely e-mail and had let me know that this book is now available for instant download.

Carolyn and Lyn have two other books for instant download as well. They are "A Basketmaker's Odyssey: Over Under Around and Through" and "Basketmaker's Baskets".

Be sure to visit their website Word Weavers Ink and have a look around their site and at their amazing gallery. For those of you who are in the intermediate or advanced level of weaving be sure to check out their basket weaving kits. They are stunning.
Happy Weaving,
Nancy

I'm really glad you posted this article. Lyn Siler is my "weaving Mom" (Her books taught me how to weave). I'm also excited that her "Basketmaker's Odyssey" book is also available as an E-Book, and it's about $15 cheaper than the softcover.

Thanks so much for the blog visit. VERY glad to find you and your blog! I have this book and have used a few of the patterns. Most recently I bought the supplies for the oriole basket. Hopefully during these cold months I can get back to weaving! Look forward to reading more here. Christmas blessings to you and yours! -Tammy
