basketryThe Basketry Study Group will meet the 1st Saturday of every month from 9:30am- 12:30pm at Tucson College, 5151 E. Broadway Blvd, Ste. 155, Tucson, 85711. 

The first meeting will be Saturday, Sept. 6.  Bring your tools and any project you’re working on to show or finish.  Those of us without a project will make holiday decorations using materials in our stash. 

 We will also decide our projects for the coming year.  Suggestions so far are coiled baskets, gourd weaving and fashion items such as hats or purses appropriate for the next Fashion Show, whenever it will be rescheduled.  This last item will require some preplanning as you must be juried to enter an item in the show.
Happily, this is not hard to do, but will take a bit of time.  We could also try our hands at lidded baskets.  To see samples of what others have done, go to Pinterest.com, and search for baskets.  Just scroll through the page that comes up.  Pinterest is an electronic bulletin board where members can pin images that interest or inspire them and is free to join.  Everyone is welcome.  For those members who are interested in basketry but don’t have any tools or materials, come anyway!  We’ll all pitch in to give you a hand.If you have any other ideas for upcoming projects, or have any questions, please contact Wendy Webster, Basketry Study Group Coordinator, at 490-2263, or at tapweaver@aol.com.

Instructions to Tucson College:
From the intersection of Broadway and Rosemont (half way between Swan and Craycroft), go north on Rosemont.  Almost immediately, turn right into the parking lot of the white tower at 5151 E. Broadway.  Park where you like after driving up the ramp.  After parking, walk past the west entrance to the tower and through the breezeway between the tower and the one-story building on the right.  Tucson College is in the one-story building.  Walk to the second glass door on the right.  Ask the receptionist for directions to the fishbowl.  That is our name for the room in which we will be meeting.
