Step by Step Instructions For Signing On

Welcome to the BasketMakers chat room. This chat room may or may not be moderated. Please check the chat schedule and details below for times when a Guide or Chat Host will be on the premises.

Are you a basket maker or fiber artist? A shop or gallery owner? A basketry event sponsor? A Basket Guild contact person? Do you have a love of individually hand woven baskets? Do you love to share what you know or learn from what others know? You have found the right place if your answer is Yes.

We regularly chat about topics like:

  • Conferences, festivals, conventions, lectures, exhibits and other basketry events
  • Basketry guilds and organizations
  • Where to find, harvest, prepare and use natural basketmaking materials
  • Where to purchase basketweaving patterns, kits, tools, books and supplies
  • The work of individual basket artists and craftsmen
  • Techniques like coiling, splintwork, wicker and twining
  • How to get started in basketry
  • Learning how to weave a basket
  • Basketry traditions and history
  • Basketmaking friends!

Come on in, ask questions and get answers about making individually hand-crafted baskets. This is a place to learn, to share your ideas, knowledge, or your favorite basketry site with others. Feel free to join your basketmaking friends and fellow enthusiasts for a basketmakers chat here any time, or at gathering times listed below.

If you would like to use the room for a special purpose, such as a basket guild board meeting, let me know and I will help you with the details.

Gathering Times:

Pine Needle Chat - Monday - 6 pm Pacific Time. Check here for possible time updates.

If you happen to come to the room when no one else is here, please take time to visit the rest of this large and constantly growing site.
