My baskets and other woven items are made in a smoke-free home studio with imported reed and many locally gathered materials. I have taught basket weaving for 17years and have 32 years of experience creating baskets. In my Etsy shop I offer primarily onion and garlic holders and ribbed baskets, distinguished by a unique construction style that involves making a structured form out of ribs and then weaving materials into the ribs.

Ribbed baskets are a folk design owned by nobody, but every weaver puts her own sense of design into her baskets. Even the onion and garlic baskets I weave are my own interpretation of a style I learned 25 yrs ago from one of my basketry suppliers.

Other designs available tend to be based in deep American traditions, particularly splint woven baskets inspired by native basket designs. In addition I weave many kinds of ribbed baskets resembling those that came to us from the settlers and natives in and around the Appalachian Mountains.

So, come on in and browse the baskets. I weave all year and there are often new baskets in my shop and new developments in the baskets I've been offering.

I offer a full guarantee of your satisfaction. If you receive an item that is damaged, or has been misrepresented, you may return the item for a full refund, including shipping. You may return an item for any reason, but when the reason is not my fault I will refund the full purchase price minus any shipping costs. I accept only payment in USD (US funds) and international buyers must use PayPal. Most items are shipped in 1-3 days.

While many of my baskets are one-or-a-kind, many of them can also be reproduced should something sell before you get around to buying it. Just convo me your basket wishes.

A NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING CHARGES - Etsy has not yet developed the means for calculating shipping charges by weight and location, so I usually estimate the worst case scenario. If your actual shipping charges come out to much less, I'll refund the difference. If I underestimated, then my goof is your gain.
