What a wonderful weekend I just had, nothing but basketweaving. It started off with a not so smooth ferry ride from Pt. Jeff to Bridgeport and a traffic free drive to Enfield, Connecticut. Friday night I was a student (yeah!) weaving a miniature ash basket called a Miniature Bread Basket that became affectionately known as the Atkins Bread Basket. Cute and tiny.
Saturday was spent in the Open Weave room where I taught the Paper Bowl Filler Baskets and the Binder Clip Photo/Note holders. Ruth Garcia also taught her beautiful cane bracelets. Weavers also had the opportunity to finish any incomplete basket projects or have a class with Ruth or myself. Very casual and a lot of fun.
Sunday was my day to be the teacher. What a fun time I had with my group of students. Students? Most of my "students" were teachers, so that made my day really easy. We made a low sided basket with heart accents and just had fun sharing tips, tricks and ideas.
The day end with a lovely lunch at a local pub with my friends from the Long Island Basketweavers Guild and the Basketweavers Guild of Eastern Long Island. We had a large contingent of members from both guilds. It was a great weekend.
