You can get lots of fruit in this basket, or carry a pie in it to a neighbor. It has a solid wooden base, 10 inches across. The basket is woven about 5 inches tall, and is 12 inches across the top. The sturdy metal handle adds another 7 inches. Bands of red and blue reed, and heavy twine are woven in. A pretty, but practical basket.
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.
