2017 NCBA's Keep it Square class.

Just about done with that lovely 3/2 rim lashing!!  Great Spiral Tray.

Beginning of fun in the Funfetti class!!

I started making baskets about 1990 to keep  busy after watching my youngest of 3 sons head off to Kindergarten!  That class led to many more classes from a variety of instructors. I then went on to designing my own baskets!  I began teaching "on the road" about 8 years ago and absolutely love it!! I am also an avid photographer. I take all the photographs used throughout this website. 

Since 1995 I have helped organize and coordinate WinterWeave, a weaving conference in Mentor Ohio sponsored by Wildwood Basket Guild.  This conference allows weavers from across the country to enjoy February weather in Northeast Ohio!!  www.winterweave.com
