New Holiday Basket

This is a new design from Ewe & Ewe by Mary Beth Baxter.  I found this artist with the help of Maggie Thompson, of Maggie Co.  This was my other choice for the retreat.  I was so excited that they went ahead and produced the piece anyway.


This will be available as a kit in October and as a class November 2nd and 16th 10-12:30

The complete kit is $248 and includes the canvas, stitch guide and thread kit.  There is a $40 class fee/class. You can pre order the kit online or register for the class.

basket-1The basket is a woven technique, much like a woven potholder you made as a kid.  It just has a more complex pattern.  So fast and easy!


The holly leaves and berries were so much fun! A little off canvas weaving, anyone? And the beaded berries. . . well that’s a secret you’ll learn in class.


I attached an actual ribbon to the canvas.  I tried so many different things, but nothing seemed to work out, or look halfway decent.  In fact, it looked terrible.


I wanted the cookies to look like they had that green and red sugar that my mother sprinkles on her Christmas cookies.

There will be an exclusive magnet to accompany this canvas.  This is the prototype rendering of what will be a real magnet.


Pre order yours online. The magnet is available without the purchase of the canvas or kit.

    A beautiful basket, and the weaving on the basket is so authentic! Of course the sugar cookies look good enough to bite!
