Basket Weaving

At the March Play Day on the 26th, Jennie Baas will be teaching us how to weave the Potluck Market Basket and the Tropical Storm Collin (TSC).

The Potluck Market Basket is 10" by 10" and is a good basket for the beginner or person who hasn't woven a basket in a while!  It covers all of the basic steps for weaving splint baskets and is a really functional size.

The Tropical Storm Collin (TSC) is 5" in diameter and 5 3/4" tall.  This basket is for the more experienced weaver.  It has multiple types of continuous weave, with a distinctive twill in the middle.

For both baskets, Jennie will have color choices available. The cost of the workshop is $10 and the kit cost for either basket is $25.

If you have a partially finished basket that you need to finish, bring it and Jennie will try to help you complete your project!

Some basket weaving tools will be available for use during Play Day, but it would be helpful if you bring a small pruner/scissors, a flat head screw driver or table knife, a spray bottle, a ruler and pencil, a wash basin or bucket to soak the reed, a dish towel, and clothes pins.

If you have any questions, you can contact Jennie directly at limetreebaskets@gmail.com or by calling 
309-721-3532.
