A few weeks ago, Shirley Mount from the Basket Patch, come down and taught at our guild. She brought some of ‘the Patch’ with her so we had fun shopping. And we really enjoyed weaving her nesting canisters.
We had every size in process
and we had a very full class – 14!
Shirley is a wonderful teacher.
Weaving on a mold was a new technique for many of our guild members.
It was a wonderful class. We had a few brand new weavers join us
as well as one of our most experienced weavers.
It was a great day of weaving and visiting- It was good to catch up with each other!!
The ‘five musketeers’, they worked as hard as they laughed!
We only made these three sizes, but there is one larger canister in the series.
Shirley lives in Gilman Wisconsin, her business, The Basket Patch, is a great source for basket weaving supplies. You will want to check out her website or call her for more information (715-447-8497).
