Note from shop owner Hello... :)
Iam temporarily closing my shop. iam a mom before Iam a basket weaver... I have decided to slow my pace abit this Holiday Season and focus on my Family, and do FUN stuff! My local and online business has picked up considerably this year, and I know how every Holiday season goes... Its fun, But hugely busy! :)

I know looking back on my life I will never 'wish I had made more baskets' . I never want my children to look at baskets and remember mom being so busy with weaving, that she had no time to make fun, spontaneous memories, Just because.

I also realize that achieving that goal calls for some pretty clear boundaries, and sticking to them takes courage and sacrifice.. However...I feel like Im making the right decision.. So Im sticking to it! :)

Please let me know if theres one you'd like made...and I want to THANK YOU all for giving me such a wonderful year here on Etsy!! I plan to be back in January, so keep looking for that!
Blessings and Wonderful Holiday wishes to you and yours! -Emily-

I was so excited to get this special basket. Emily is so understanding and kind. My husband even said how well it is made. Thanks, Emily for all your extra work.

It is absolutely beautiful and made well. It looks even nicer than the photo. Sewing machines rarely come with cases these days. My sewing machine, sewing lamp, extension cord, and sewing supplies fit nicely in this large tote which is now the focal point of my mud room in my old farmhouse.

About

Baskets, and how they became a part of my life..

My husband and I lived the first four years of our marriage in North Carolina. It is there, in March of 2000 that I wove my first basket. I immediately connected with the art, and wove many a basket on the large front porch of our small southern home. The Smoky Mountain Range, which we lived near was full of basket weavers of all kinds... i was inspired by all of them I met! I gave many of my first baskets as gifts, and then got in to doing craft shows in the tourist towns of the mountains.

In 2002, we moved out to the great Northwest... a change for sure, but one thing came along... basket weaving. It was here that I got into lots of teaching (basketweaving) and also had my baskets in local shops, and markets.

Most of the baskets I weave now are my own designs, and I find so much satisfaction in turning my ideas into a truly useable item! I dye all my own colors for the baskets on my stovetop, and also make my own stain for the baskets out of pecan shells. Most of my designs are practical, and useable all around your home and farm. I put many of them to test, using them myself for almost everything!

I do not as yet, have 'a shop of my own' , but it has been in the conversations of my husband and I many times... I have a space in my basement where I weave, and also weave a lot on my patio when the weather is nice. I am so blest to be able to do what I enjoy, and still be home, doing all the 'mom jobs'. I know God has been good to bless me with basketry and I praise Him for it often. I love people, and meeting new people, and this has been a wonderful way to do it!
