Baskets for your treasures from fabric and pins to yarn and hooks

Hi. My Name is Jane Theobald and I have been making Nantucket style baskets for almost 40 years.  Thank you for visiting my site.  I hope you will enjoy my continued efforts to incorporate the beauty of the origional baskets to the storage functions of contemporary needleworkers, knitters, rug hookers, and women in general.

Pleaes email me at if you have any questions about my work.  I accept  money orders, personal checks, and credit cards through square.

This basket would be nice for a small needlework project. It measures 8 inches long,6 1/2 inches wide, 5 inches high to rim and 10 inches high with the swing handle up. The basket has a signed cherry bottom, oak staves and is woven with natural cane which has a light protective finish. The handle is attached with an antique bone disc and a copper pin. It is from a mold I made probably 30 years ago and has lots of usages aside from just pretty lines. It will be happy in anyone's home. please click on photo for more images Please e mail for shipping cost and instructions

This lovely little treasure basket has many all my baskets do. This one has lots of secrets which you will now know. It measures 4 1/2 inches square and is 2 1/2 inches high. The bottom and top are recycled mahogany from an old boat. the staves are recycled old cane as is the cane with which the basket was woven. Both are between 50 and 60 years old.
