JoElla  Manning

JoElla has been creating pine needle baskets since 2013. A crafter since childhood, fiber and stitching have been her focus from needle crafts to garments, macrame to embroidery, locker hooking to quilting arts coiling was a natural transition. Becoming hooked while making her first basket, fascinated with bowl and basket shaping, and marrying stitch to fiber have all led to coiling contentment. Perfecting the craft led JoElla into teaching, exhibiting, and selling her basket creations. Functional yet beautiful, basket coiling is a meditative yet purposeful process, and the joy of teaching is apparent in the patient and encouraging approach toward her students. JoElla teaches basketry and crafts at the Shepherd's Center of Orange Park, FL, and is a member of the National Basketry Organization.

These baskets tend to be smaller but can be easily bulked by adding pine needles, yarns, etc. to the core. The wonderful advantage of closed coiling offers a vast array of patterned designs, developing shape and color as you add or drop threads during the wrap. The lab fee includes all materials allowing you a wide variety of wrap materials in multiple colors.
