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,

Almost Finished! - Handwoven rug and a Give Away!

Dear Friends,
Remember this?
Well it is almost finished!  Yippee!!  Just a few more rows and I'm ready to remove it from the loom.
The project wouldn't have taken nearly as long if I'd have just sat down and done it.
I'm doing the happy dance because I'm finishing it today.

Here is the give-away part.  I know I will not be weaving anymore rugs.  This size is approx 2' x 3'.  I like quicker projects :-)

If you would like the loom, and you are in the Albuquerque area, shoot me an e-mail to: basketmaster_nancy (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will be happy to meet you at a nearby McDonalds and give it to you.  You have until Feb. 1st to e-mail me.  I will not ship this, you have to be able to pick it up.  First one to e-mail me gets it.

If no one e-mails me, I'm going to contact my instructor and give it to her.  The cost of the loom was included in my class.  I'm sure she can use it for another student, but I would love to give it to one of you.

Hugs and blessings,

I love your rug. Just found your blog today while searching for pictures or patterns for a tobacco basket. I have been wanting to make a rag rug for awhile. Yours is really nice. I hope your instructor enjoys it.

So you got your rug finished and then what? I am soooo curious what you've been doing since then?

I sometimes find the simple act of leaving a comment rather difficult. I know I made a previous comment and not sure where it went so I'm making another one. Just curious what you've been doing this past year. John 21: 6 is rather refreshing. It's always nice when Jesus shows up!

Hi Nancy, just found your blog. I am a person with a disability and as a little girl my mom and dad gave me a loom for children. I have forgotten whether or not I could do it successfully. I am near retirement age. I am somewhat in-coordinate and now have arthritis in my neck and shoulders. I thought I could try weaving on a loom. Is your "free" offer still available? If so, I have a sister and friends in ABQ who could pick it up. My email is

I love you instructional videos!!
