Weavers and Friends ~
Northwest Hoosier Basket Guild was organized in September, 1991, for the purpose of promoting the art of basket making to interested individuals. Monthly meetings - except July and December (Christmas Party) - are held on the 3rd Monday at the United Way of Porter County Conference Room at 951 Eastport Centre Dr., Valparaiso, IN 46383.
Programs related to basketry are provided monthly by members. There is a fee for lessons set by teachers if applicable. Programs start at 6 PM and a business meeting follows at 7 PM. Refreshments are served by several members who volunteer to bring snacks or dessert.
Anyone who has some weaving skills and is interested in weaving baskets is invited to join us at any of our monthly meetings.
Dues are $20 per year and are due by February 1st annually. A monthly newsletter is sent to all members by your choise of email or postal service.

If you attended our fifth fall Retreat at the Expo in September 2011, we thank you for joining us and hope you had an enjoyable time and went home with beautiful handwoven treasures. Since 2012, the Guild has sponsored periodic weaving weekends which have been great opportunities to learn techniques and basket styles from special teachers on a smaller and more intimate scale. Our May workshop featured Sandy Bulgrin and another workshop in September was lead by Karen Griffith. Information about future Weaving Weekends will be posted on this website.
Basket weaving is fun!! Please join Northwest Hoosier Basket Guild members at a monthly meetings and become a member with a great bunch of weavers.
