Breaking news......
Elizabeth Whyte Schluze wrote me to say...

Thank you for all the work that you put into the basket makers site, it is such an excellent source of information. I am forwarding this announcement of an important upcoming show at Mobilia Gallery that includes many basket makers. I also have great news. I have been awarded one of the Massachusetts Cultural council Fellowships in Crafts for 2009! It comes with a very generous award. I am thrilled and honored to be chosen. I hope that it will inform more people about basketry and the importance of our craft. www.massculturalcouncil.org
Best,
Elizabeth
