Every day (except Mondays - we are closed) the Basket shop is staffed by one of the weavers mentioned above (or me!) to share our knowledge of basket weaving with our guests who come to hear the story of life in NW Ohio from the late 1700's to 1910. I enjoy everyday that I work, I've met so many interesting people, both guests and fellow employees.

I thought I'd share photos with all of you of the Basket Shop at Historic Sauder Village. Looks exciting from the outside? Once the flowers are planted a little latter in the spring and I hang baskets from the porch rafters it will look a little more welcoming! Once you step inside, it's a different story! Thanks to my fellow weavers, Anita, Barb, Cinda, Dinah, Joan, Marcia and Sara the shop looked great for opening day yesterday. This week at Sauder Village is Quilt Fair, where our quilt shop hosts classes and events in conjunction with a large display of quilts made by people from all over the country. The display is in our large multi-purpose Founder's Hall. It's always amazing and breathtaking to see the quilts. I always think of the hours and hours it took to create all these lovely masterpieces.
