How Did You Get Started?: My friend in Yakima 40 years ago showed me how to make my first pine needle basket.
What Do You Love About What You Do?: Basketry is part of who I am. The name of one of my ancestors was Basket. One NW Native nation says when you are a good basket maker, you take an ancestors name. I did that 30 years ago.
