Want to Join the Basketeers?

All new members, regardless of experience, are required to attend three classes and make three particular baskets. There are no exceptions. A kit containing all the supplies needed for these baskets (plus additional baskets) will be provided. Tools are also offered for use in making these 3 baskets. Each class covers techniques commonly used in basket making.

  • The cost of the kit is $65.00 which covers all supplies needed for the three classes plus enough reed to make additional baskets.
  • An additional $17.50 covers the fee to join the club – $10.00 annual dues and $7.50 for the required badge.
  • As in all Sun City West clubs, monitoring is required.
