Welcome to the Central Pennsylvania Basket Weaver’s Guild
The Central Pennsylvania Basket Weavers' Guild
was founded in January 1997 for the purposes of perpetuating the art of basketry; stimulating public appreciation, knowledge of and interest in basketry; and emphasizing the importance of basketry as a heritage craft.
