This week's Featured Artisan is so talented and inspiring! It's with such great pleasure that I introduce you to Rose Clawson of Bakets By Rose:What is the name of your shop? And why did you choose this name?
Basketsbyrose, because my name is Rose, and I weave baskets.
What type of items do you offer?
Handwoven baskets, quilts, and some other items I enjoy making
How long have you been crafting?
Started hand sewing at 5, and on the sewing machine at age 10. Weaving since 1993.
Who or What inspires you?
Everyone and everything. I love looking at everyone's work.
What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
Right now that would be my tulip basket. The bright colors are great, and very springy. Better then the gray skies we have been having lately.
