Hi, I'm a new member to QCA and I do basket making, jewelry and I love to sew lots of things
now including quilts.
My mother does basketweaving and just taught me one method. It's hard to get to it because i'm so involved with my quilts. Although I do find it fascinating. I also do beading, and stained glass. What kinds of things do you sew?
Hi Mary! Welcome to QCA. I don't do much else for crafts, but I do garden so this time of year I have to split my free time between gardening and quilting.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)

I sew some of my own clothes and aprons and potholders etc. I used to make my daughter's clothes and some shirts for my son. And I have made a lot of baby blankets for my grandkids and to sell. I have taught some basket making classes and I plan to teach a beading class this summer. I wish I had a quilting machine,but I'm not sure where I would put it. Guess I'd have to get rid of something to do that!
Nice to talk to you. Mary
I don't do much gardening....my husband is the one with the green thumb!!
PS I have sewn other things of interest too. I made the proto-type of a cooling vest for the military at the begining of the Iraq war. And I have made a coat in bright orange for a hunting dog.
I like to read too. I read a lot of historical ficition and mysteries.
I like to read too, mostly historical fiction and mysteries.
You ladies are all making me feel welcome. Thanks Mary in Wyoming
Hi Mary, glad you are with us. My mother made pine needle baskets. I have several of them.
Yes, I have made a couple of them and baskets made with gourds. I also make baskets with barbed wire. And I have used cattail rushes,but am not as happy with them.
Thanks. Cute cats. I have a Golden Retriever that is cream color and just turned 1 year old.
