Jim "Doc" Ford

I like to work in our yard (3 acres) but when the weather is BAD I needed something to do other than play games on the computer.  A basket weaving workshop was offered in February of 2016 and instructor Rosie Huddleston suggested I take it.  My wife said YES!  That was my first experience with basket making.  I made 12 baskets for Christmas presents that year!

I am enjoying the challenge of more difficult patterns, and keeping my hands and mind busy when the weather keeps me inside.

My wife of 65 years is letting me show my baskets and share her studio…on the porch.
