I began my basketry odyssey in 1999, when a friend taught me how to make a reed basket and provided a catalog for ordering supplies. I bought plenty, but I also found materials for coiled basketry, something I had longed to try for many years. Unfortunately, though supplies were available, there weren't many publications on the subject. I searched online and found just enough to get started. Though I've made many reed baskets over the years, I've made many more coiled baskets.

Birch bark quill box construction is an Ojibwe art form, and yet another skill for which there isn't much instructional material available. I've made one quill box, the round basket with white dove on it. I've written an instructional booklet explaining how to do it, and it is available for sale ($7) for as long as my supply lasts. Contact me via my FaceBook page if interested.
