My name is Susan Cudden and I make Pineneedle Baskets. 16 years ago on a trip to Florida I came upon a class of students coiling with pineneedles. I loved the natural look and the rythmic process of coiling. The next year I signed up for this class and discovered a medium that is both relaxing and very portable.
Spending winters in Florida has allowed me to gather the premium 10-14in pineneedles which work best for coiling. I have completed over 250 baskets and wallhangings. I have also taught classes in the Hayward area for the last 10 years.
I love the unique look of the finished project and the endless opportunities for creativity.
