The Basket Club is having a Christmas basket and ornament workshop in August. If you’re here in Sun City West for the summer, please join us for some basket making fun! Snowbirds, sorry you can’t join us, but give any of these fun patterns a try!

Click the buttons to display each pattern in a PDF file for you to print. New to the workshop this year are the snowflake, woven cross, Christmas tree ornament, and star wreath ornament. Back by popular request are the Angel ornament, reindeer ornament, gift card basket, woven ornament, snowman hat & mini-snowman hat. This is a chance to make ornaments for yourself or the craft fair and have fun as a group.

Fellow Basketeers will be there to help out if anyone has questions on any of the patterns.

Reed and some decorations for the patterns are available at the club for purchase.
