Now cutting and tucking may not be your favorite part of weaving a basket, but you really should put ‘Camp Tuck’ on your weaving event bucket list. Land of Lincoln Basketweavers Association (LLBWA) hosts ‘Camp Tuck’ each September in Bloomington/Normal, Illinois.
This year LLBWA hosted 5 teachers at Camp Tuck:
Nancy Matthews and Char Ciammaichella (Hiding from the camera! I’ll get you next time Char!),
Laura Lee Zanger, Julie Kleinrath and me.
I taught five basket classes:
So many color choices – so many beautiful little baskets!
On Saturday I taught T-Tray
From my pictures you would think that everyone was weaving the T Tray in blue … not true. There were several colors to choose from, seems I only got good pictures of the blue baskets! This really is a lovely basket and worth all the time they put into it – one of my past students won ‘Best of Show’ with it! Congratulations Pamela!
Camp Tuck is a wonderful event. A tasty lunch is served daily, every one is very helpful and friendly and the location is perfect – roomy and close to hotels and restaurants. I always enjoy attending. Thanks for having me!
