I first caught the "basket bug" in 1994. I started teaching in 2006 in the basement of my home. With encouragement I started jurying to teach at conventions. Five years ago, I took another leap of faith and built a shop on my property in Illinois. Bonnie's Baskets hosts the Basket Art Guild approximately 9 times a year. In 2018 I took yet another lear of faith and left my "regular" job to pursue my passion full time. I have never been happier! I love to design new baskets and teach beginners to weave. I am also known for my love of embellishments.
