I’ve wanted to try this for many, many years. Registered for a class once but had to cancel for some reason or other. I think the pine needle baskets are just beautiful works of art. Looking forward to reading your piece.

Wow! Can’t wait to learn more about this!

What am I working on? I’m in the home stretch, working on a mixed media piece that I’ll be entering in the Creative Arts exhibit at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield MA. Involves weaving, embroidery, needlefelting, and a little beadwork. All wool is from my sheep and hand-dyed by me. I’m enjoying the project immensely, but can’t wait to work on other things that are on hold!

I had no idea this craft even existed. I’m quite curious.

Pine needle weaving looks like fun! Saw it a long time ago (I think it was on Carol Duvall) and they were weaving baskets – they were beautiful!

Since I only have about 20 crafts going on right now, decided to learn tea bag folding. Very pretty and easy to do, even for me!

This looks like a fun project!
I received and love the looms, I’ll blog about them once I can start on a project.
Thank you SO much, you’re very generous!

I saw your basket weaving feature in today’s press and I would like to meet Alverna Sidor and show her some of my baskets I made from Judy Mallow’s book. Please give her phone # and that I can get in touch with her.
