Re: Rope coil baskets

Hi Gelato!
How are things this year? Hope it is going better than last - we are
working without a contract and getting nowhere - some steps actually went
DOWN in pay! ANyway, could you send the info you have on coil baskets to
me? I'd like to do that in my crafts class - this is the first time I've
taught it so I have revamped it. We are just finishing with stained glass -
it was a lot of fun. I'd love to do baskets, and maybe weave seed beads
around the rims - but I haven't made one in ages and don't know where to

I wish the art museum was still having their teacher workshops this year,
but it doesn't look like anything is in the works. Maybe they will plan a
Saturday workshop like the Pop Art one last year - that was great.

Let me know if you can send the basket info - thanks!
