Elementary basket weaving

One of several books that can teach you elementary basket weaving. This one’s particular virtues are that it has very clear instructions for a large variety of baskets you might actually use (more than other guides), and that it can be had for a few dollars online, used.

Beyond the standard ” flat reed” rolls, its hard to find unusual weaving fibers — unless you make your own. This source, V. I. Reed & Cane, has a few other natural fibers. Anyone know of a better source?
