Baskets in the Nantucket Tradition

Baskets in the Nantucket Tradition

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 nantbasktjct@gmail.com if you have any questions about my work.  I accept  money orders, personal checks, and credit cards through square.

In addition, please look at all photos and descriptions closely, as all sales are final.

I made this little very simple Shaker style pincushion out of materials I have for basketmaking. The body is oak and the bottom is an old piece of mahogany. It is very simply stuffed with recycled 50 year old Irish fisherman's wool which is water resistant by the way. It is most convenient as it can be easily carried around on your little finger while your hands are full. The basket measures 3 inches long by two and one half inches wide by three inches to the top of the handle. Cost includes shipping in US

This little pincushion is made in the simple Shaker style using left over pieces of wood from my basket work. One of the challenges is to feel and listen to the wood as you work with it and this basket was a chance for me to relax, forget and learn from nature. The basket body is oak and the bottom is old mahogany . It is stuffed with 50 year old Irish fisherman's wool which resists water. The basket measures 2 1/2 inches long by 2 inches wide and is 2 3/4 inches to the top of the handle. It may be carried around on your little finger when you have your hands full of your work. Price includes shipping in US.
