Machine-stitched Rag Basket Class – August 2015

A very enthusiastic group gathered on August 29th at Runs With Scissors Studio in Winnipeg Beach to learn how to make rag rope baskets.

The first project is to learn the method by sewing a coaster.

not bad, for first attempts.

Then comes the basket and learning how to ‘throw a pot’ on your sewing machine.

With lots of hard work and laughs everyone actually finished their vessel realizing that rope baskets are not quite as easy as you think they are.

    These stiched baskets remind me of my grandma. At her age, women stayed at home for raising children and making clothes; most of clothes and shoes were made by sitches. I guess we girls should learn and keep these traditional culture.
