Announcement   The art of basketweaving is nearly as old as the creation of time. Centuries before the invention of cardboard or plastic, people needed containers for the harvesting, transporting, and storage of goods, possessions, and treasures. They wove baskets from whatever materials were available – grasses, vines, pine needles, barks, and strips of wood. As years have rolled on, basketry has withstood the test of time. Today there are many other forms of “containers”, but nostalgia reminds us that a well-woven, handmade basket is still something to be appreciated and enjoyed.

So welcome to our basket collection. Take time to browse through the pictures and descriptions. All of the items you will see have been designed and woven, signed and dated, by Joanna or her daughter, Dani, right here in the United States. If you don’t find the basket you are looking for, please contact us for custom work.

And, thank you for visiting Joanna’s Collections.

About

Joanna's Collections - Country Home Basketry - Est. 1991

I have loved baskets ever since I received my first wooden-lidded picnic basket as a wedding shower gift 39 years ago.

Our home has since been decorated with baskets; we carried our babies' necessities in “diaper baskets”; I have hidden the Scotch, masking, and duct tapes in market baskets, (so it's there when needed); our kitchen is filled with bread baskets, muffin baskets, napkin and paper plate baskets, utensil baskets, and casserole baskets; the laundry is hauled in wash-day baskets; our books are held in magazine or carry-all baskets; library books are transported to and fro in leather handled tote baskets; etc., etc., etc., :-) In other words, I am never found without a basket in hand!

Although my love for baskets has covered the last three decades, I was not actually "hands on" involved until the summer of 1991 when I was introduced to basket weaving. At the time, our family lived and worked at a Christian camp in northern Wisconsin, and a lady from Milwaukee was attending a week-long family camp. She was an avid basket maker, and so she offered a class out on the deck of the dining hall. Being on a tight budget with a family of seven, I did not even have the $10 material fee needed to take the class. But a good friend paid my fee, and we spent a beautiful afternoon weaving our first baskets. I was immediately hooked! Up to that point in life, I had enjoyed many other types of crafts, but now, basket weaving quickly moved into first place.

Since that memorable summer afternoon 23+ years ago, I have woven over 7900 baskets, taught hundreds of classes, and designed a countless number of patterns.

I create and weave all of our baskets in our own home shop. We have been blessed with a restored 1916 country farmhouse on a 20-acre hobby farm located in eastern Minnesota, and have had nine children, three of which are still at home. (The others keep coming back home with more!) We have a large vegetable garden, a dozen apple trees, a long row of raspberries, and lots of flowers in the summer. We raise chickens and turkeys, keep honeybees, and had three horses, an old dog and a varying number of farm cats. There are bikes in the dirt driveway, a swing set in the back yard, and two small ponds out in the pasture. All in all, it is a great place to raise a family and — WEAVE BASKETS!
