This basket tells a story of the weaver, Levi's determination, strength and eye for detail shines through. He started with a 6 by 14 inch base, woven with a basket reed. It's 7 1/2 inches tall and embellished with a star and berry wreath. Sturdy handles make this a versatile basket, with many uses.
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.
