The Basket Gathering at Bacchus Marsh

It is hard to put into words just how wonderful it was to be a part of this gathering. About 10 makers from other countries, 140 wonderful Australian basketmakers. There was sharing, laughter, wine, making, chatting, eating....... Days of just enjoying each other, the materials, learning new techniques and tricks, meeting people, catching up with old friends.

Just a few photos to give an idea of how very wonderful it was.....

I had to travel to Australia to room with Polly Jacobs Giacchina (from San Diego). It was worth it!!
