Bonnie, who lives in Pinehurst, has been designing and weaving baskets for over 30 years.  She has written and published many of her basket patterns and is well known throughout the state for her unique baskets and for the classes she leads in basket making.    Bonnie’s baskets are both beautifully constructed and beautiful to view. She is an extremely busy and productive lady and is truly (in her words) an addicted “basket case.”
