From the publisher:
"This classic text in basket-making, now in paperback, shows how to transform fragrant pine needles into stunning coiled baskets and other decorative items. It’s surprisingly easy, with all 40 projects based on wrapping needles around a center. From this simple technique, however, crafters can create limitless variety through the way they shape the coils, dye the needles, vary stitches, embellish with beads and seeds, and incorporate leather and wood. Special sections address gathering and storing materials, making lids and handles, and more.
Judy Mallow is a fifth generation pine needle basket-maker whose work is displayed in museums and sold at fine galleries and crafts fairs on the east coast of the U.S. A popular teacher, Judy currently lives in Carthage, NC.
“Mallow is an excellent teacher with a gift for keeping the subject entertaining and easy to follow.”—Small Press"
