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

How to Weave a Basket - Jack-o'Lanten Basket


Dear Friends,
I am pleased to bring to you the first in a series of videos to help you take your basket weaving to the next level.  These videos are intended to build upon what I have taught you in those basic step-by-step video instructions in How To Weave a Basket.  Just look over at the right hand sidebar.  You will see a little cartoon guy holding a video camera.  All my basket weaving videos are listed in order below that little guy. 

Once you have woven a handful of basic baskets, try tweaking things a bit and coming up with some creative weaving combinations.  You will come up with a beautiful basket for sure!

It is my intent that this series of videos will give you some creative ideas and inspiration of ways to weave and new things to try.

Baskets of Blessings,
Nancy
