New Basketmakers Journal

The world wide web has changed markedly since the beginning of BasketMakers.com back in 2001. A new lexicon of web technologies has developed since that time and in hopes of staying current I have been working intently on a variety of means to keep you up to date on the news of the basketmaking community. I have taken the wraps off my new web journal and I hope you will consider subscribing. I have also been working on extensions of the main site onto YouTube, Google Calendar, Facebook, Twitter, Issuu and Flickr. I will welcome your feedback on these new features. Please leave your comments, subscribe or follow me. If you request friend status on Facebook or any of the other social networking sites, be sure to mention your involvement in basketry.
