I teach basketry classes at a variety of art centers, state parks, and craft shops. The classes always include all materials, use of tools, and a fun time! All you have to bring is yourself, perhaps a friend or two, and something to snack on if you want. Unless otherwise stated, all classes are for those 16 years or older.

Class fun Make an heirloom and have fun doing it! Baskets are fun, and can be very easy to make. I have classes ranging from beginner through intermediate, and into advanced skill levels.

Tell me about your group or organization and I will prepare a class proposal for you. The proposal outlines what facilities are needed, what classes will be taught, and what financial arrangements will be made.

All class prices include all materials needed to make the basket, use of tools, instruction, and lots of fun!

Organizational hosts may receive a portion of class proceeds, and individual hosts may receive their basket for free with minimum enrollment.

Quilter's Car Tote Basket, September Basket Class, Suwannee Valley Shops, Trenton, FL

Quilter's Car Tote Basket Class, at Suwannee Valley Shops, Trenton, FL Tuesday, September 20, 2016 - NEW CLASS LOCATION!

I originally designed this basket for my sister, who went to a lot of quilting classes. She needed something that would fit behind her driver's Seat, hold a lot of stuff, and have a swing handle. I use one to carry my stuff, too. It is so handy, so pretty, and it is a beautiful, classic basket! Easier than it looks, too, so it is a great project for a beginning basket maker!

Wear comfortable clothes and bring a snack or plan to have lunch at the Suwannee Rose Cafe, bring an apron or towel, and plan on having lots of laughs while you make a basket that is sure to bring loads of compliments! Class fee $65.00.  Class fee includes all materials, instruction, and use of tools. Tuesday, September 20. Class starts at 9:00 AM, and may take until 3:30 or so. Seating is limited to 12 students, and is expected to be popular, so sign up quickly! Stop by Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop at 517 N. Main St, Trenton, or call at 352-463-3842 to register.
