Chances are that you have looked at pine needle baskets and decided that you could do that too -- and you can! It doesn't take a special talent or expensive equipment; just time and patience. This 1910s classic will teach you How to Make Pine Needle Baskets with step-by-step instructions and beautiful illustrations.
Pine needle basketry, conceived by Native Americans in Pre-Columbian times, is now a viable part of the American cultural heritage. Employing ancient coiling techniques and long-leaf pine needles, this art form has remained virtually the same for thousands of years. Yet it has evolved into the 21st century, bringing with its connections to our past a contemporary need to preserve our natural resources and appreciate our planet's gifts to mankind. What better way to keep tuned to Mother Nature, than to gather fragrant pine needles from her forest floor and sew them into baskets of such natural beauty, purity and resilience?
