Bonnie Roberson – Basket Maker

BONNIE ROBERSON
Pinehurst, North Carolina

Bonnie has been weaving baskets for over 30 years.  She has written and published many of her basket patterns.  She has taught at state conventions, basket waving conferences, basket guilds, the NC Cooperative Extension, the Girl Scouts, and Suzanne Moore’s NC Basket Works in Vass, North Carolina.

Bonnie is often invited to lecture about the history of basket making at garden clubs, schools, and many civic and social events.  She has given demonstrations of basket making throughout the Sandhills.  Besides being an enormously busy and productive lady, Bonnie is truly (in her words) an addicted “basket case.”  Her favorite expression is “so many baskets, so little time.”
