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,

Share a Basket Sunday

This basket sits at the end of my sofa to hold magazines and newspapers. To get the interesting twill design in the colored area, you weave basic over-under until you are ready to do the color. Then take your stakes and cut each stake lengthwise to create 3 small stakes. Do your twill weaving. Then bring the three stakes together again and finish with over-under weaving.
The title of this basket is "Ode to Joy" and the pattern was written by Dianne Craver.
Have a Blessed Sunday,

I cannot weave an "Ode to Joy" basket, but I can play it on my violin. One of my most favorite songs. A beautiful basket.
