I thoroughly enjoyed attending a basket weaving convention on the East Coast. There were teachers from across the United States and many students who gathered for this event. I took two classes on pine needle baskets (one was a piece of jewelry and the other was a beautiful piece of pottery that we wove a pine needle top for), an antler basket/bowl class that I have wanted to take for quite a while and a cute little pedestal basket that holds a plate.
My friend met me from Maryland and she turned the motel room into a quilting studio. She accomplished a lot. It was nice to catch up and get to visit with her.
