I bought this book when I was beginning to make baskets. This book is a must for the beginner and the advanced basket maker. It has several diagrams for each of the basket and has at least one color picture for each basket. Ms. Siler even has several photographs of variations of the baskets. I really enjoy this book and feel that it is a wonderful resource for all basket weavers.
This book provides plans and directions for 28 baskets in a variety of styles: New England, Southwest, Victorian, etc. The directions are clear and concise with an added section for potential problem areas such as rimming and lashing the basket. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for projects and plans
This book is a great basket book - good, clear instructions. In general, I would recommend Lyn Siler's "The Basket Book" as a better beginner's basket book. The projects in "Handmade Baskets" are a bit more advanced and unusual which for a non-beginner makes this a great addition to "The Basket Book".
