If you are here reading this, you have made it to my *seriously* revamped website, Bright Expectations Baskets. If it were not for the tech savvy neighbor and friend I have, I wouldn't be chatting to you right now via cyberspace. I will forever be indebted to her and I'm guessing a wine repayment of some sort may be in order.
I have to admit, though, that this new venture for me has me nervous - my teeth are chattering and knees shaking. I know I'll meet new friends - customers and other basket weavers - and that's a good thing. But I know there will be kinks to work out for awhile too, and I hope you all will find patience and have assurance that I will make things right if glitches do appear.
The website allows customers to purchase securely direct from me. My basket weaving patterns sold here are available via digital download once the order clears - normally within a few minutes. In our "on-demand" world, this is a great feature. No waiting on the mail to deliver your patterns.
There is a significant inventory of ready-to-ship baskets and also a large selection of custom, made to order baskets. If you have specific requirements, just email me and we can work together to create the ideal baskets for your situation.
Many of you are subscribers to "The Reed Reader", my newsletter for fellow basket weavers. If you aren't, you can sign up at the bottom of the Home Page. It's a free publication that is packed full of weaving tips, shared ideas, and pattern suggestions. I normally showcase my newly released patterns in it along with free patterns that are sometimes shared by other readers. Sign up and give it a try. I think you'll be glad you did.
Thanks so much for being here. I hope you will visit my shop often as there is a lot that will be added soon. It's going to be a fun ride!
