About Us

Coiled rope baskets caught my attention a few years ago. I started with a couple small ones that I hand stitched with embroidery floss. I soon decided it would be much faster with a sewing machine! About a year ago I resigned my position as a registered nurse after 30 something years. With that and the pandemic I suddenly had more time to teach myself with the help of online tutorials to sew these baskets.

The baskets are made using strictly a zig-zag stitch to sew row upon row of cotton rope together. Needless to say, I go through a lot of rope and even more thread! I have received some comical looks and comments from cashiers when buying supplies. I had to invest in a new machine when my mothers old machine couldn't keep up. Originally I planned to just make a few gifts but soon had so many different sizes and styles of baskets that I wanted to share them. I began selling my baskets in June of 2020 out of my home via my Facebook page. The first craft show I attended was a huge success!

I hope you enjoy my baskets as much as I enjoy making them.
