I made my first basket late one afternoon in 1988 after a very challenging day as an elementary teacher…it was a disaster! However I found this craft engaging and my over thirty year relationship with basketmaking began. I have increased my skills and love for baskets by continuing to take workshops whenever and wherever I can.
I belong to the National Basketmakers Organization and the Northeast Basketmakers Guild. I have taught basketmaking workshops privately, at Dutchess Community College, at Dutchess BOCES, for the Westchester Area Basketmakers Guild and at local libraries . Providing basketmaking workshops allows me to combine my two passions…weaving baskets and teaching.
