Let's weave a basket.

Let's weave a market basket. Supplies can be purchased at Craft Service at 337 University Ave. (585)[masked] or online.

Supplies needed...

1 pound of 5/8" flat reed

1 pound of 1/4" flat reed (can be shared by 5 people)***

8" x 12" rectangle hoop handle


Small tape measure

Clip type clothes pins (10)

Small flat head screwdriver or an awl

Plastic dishpan for water

***If you end up having to buy the whole pound of 1/4" flat reed by yourself, don't worry...I will teach a melon basket that uses that size reed for the weaving so it will get used then.

    My wife and I stopped at Craft Service. The reed was about $12/pound and handles were about $3.50. So materials cost about $30.

    Their prices were less than similar supplies I found online. But I suspect they could run out if everyone tries to buy their materials from them. So don't wait until the last minute. They did not have handle Deborah specifies but she told us you can use a different size and style. So we purchased 8x8 and 12x12 rectangular handles and an approximately 8x12 "D" style handle. I found we could buy the reed on Amazon for about $14.50 per pound. I couldn't find the exact handle there either, but they did have a 8x12 "D" handle for about $7.
