A sturdy, all purpose basket. It has a thick wooden base, 8 by 11 inches. It is woven 4 1/2 inches tall, and opens at the top to 11 by 14 inches. It has 8 bands of colored reed woven in, navy blue and cranberry. Between the top and bottom sets of reeds, there's 3 rows of seagrass woven in. The possibilities for this basket are endless, toiletries in the guest room, or a fruit basket, or lined with a cloth napkin to hold breads. If you don't want to send an empty basket as a gift, you can purchase other items of your choice and we'll arrange them nicely.
Pat Huckins is based in Greenville, on Prong Pond, and has been weaving baskets for many years. She learned to weave at a class in Hallowell and has enjoyed it ever since. She has taught many classes in the past and her favorite student and fellow weaver is her nephew Levi. Levi is a bright young man with Autism, though he does not let Autism define him. He loves to travel, surf, down hill ski, swim, and compete in Special Olympics. Levi and his Aunt Pat have started a new venture selling their baskets on Moosehead Marketplace. They hope you enjoy the baskets as much as they enjoy making them.
