Updates : St Aiden’s Homeschool for 23 November 2008

Hello All,

We were recently discussing crafts and crochet, knitting and basket weaving (in time for Christmas) so I wrote a book… Here is a description of the book and the reference. If you are interested in reviewing the book please let me know and I will give you access to the entire book. I still have more than 30 individual patterns that I did NOT include in my book because I want to upload those individually. People know their limitations and don’t need 3 pages of hot-to’s and terms and techniques 🙂

“An attractive, comprehensive & illustrated manual on basket weaving, with easy to understand instructions for beginners to experts, basketweaving terms and techniques, How to Assemble a Basket Maker’s Tool Kit, a glossary and of course loads of illustrated craft patterns for the more advanced. We’re not just talking veggie baskets here… There are Notepad holders, Easter baskets, Christmas baskets and a list of references at the end of the book that offer free basket weaving patterns and subscriptions. “
