The VSBW members have a common love of basketry and enjoy helping each other, as well as anyone with an interest in
our craft.  We get involved with many area events.

During our season (October through May), we also sponsor weekly "Weave-Ins" at Historic Spanish Point in Osprey, Florida.  Click on the link for the Weave-In for information. 

The Weave-Ins at Historic Spanish Point (HSP) are held every Tuesday from 11:AM to 2:00 PM.  Bring your lunch.  The weavers meet at the Visitor Center at noon for a wonderful, relaxing place to weave and visitors are welcome!  
For information contact Donna Naylor at 941-492-5241 
We were in a video filmed for Visit Sarasota County Presents through 
the Sarasota Herald Tribune while we were weaving at Historic Spanish

​Below are photos of the "White Cottage" at Historic Spanish Point.  The
view of the Bay is breathtaking!  We sometimes see Dolphins jump.  If 
you look closely, you'll see Jeanette Johnson and Grace Guidice on
the porch welcoming you to weave with us on Tuesdays!

In the past, we have participated in several events to showcase our work and/or do basket weaving demonstrations.  We no longer participate in all of them each year, but we included the dates because you might want to attend the events.
