If you are interested in having me teach a class or vend at your weaving event, please contact me, Shirley Mount

A little about me: I have been teaching basket weaving classes for 25 years, I don't know which I love more, teaching or weaving.  I have met so many treasured friends through the years and cannot imagine my life without them.  Thank you for sharing my passion.  I have a wonderful husband who graciously puts up with baskets EVERYWHERE, and encourages me to keep on teaching. My children and their families also encourage and share my interest in weaving. They help me cut kits and teach classes when I over extend myself!

I carry a wide variety of reed, handles, tools, spray stain, kits & patterns. If you do not see what you need, I probably have it, please call  to place an order at 715-447-8497 or email:

I have very competitive pricing. Come and shop and eliminate shipping costs. I am open most mornings or by appointment, it's always best to call first. I charge shipping only, no handling!

Directions: from the Eau Claire area take Hwy 29 east to Cadott, go North on Hwy 27 to Cornell, you must take a right to stay on 27, go through town and then take a right on Hwy 64 toward Gilman. From that point go 7 miles to 350th St., go south (right) one mile and I'm on the left.

from the SE take Hwy 29 to Stanley, go north on Cry Rd. H to Hwy 64 go left 3 miles to 350th St. go south one mile and I'm on the left.
Thanks! Shirley Mount

Welcome to The Basket Patch!

If you are interested in basket weaving, you have come to the right place. Here at The Basket Patch, I offer classes and workshops in the art of basket weaving. Basket weaving has been a true passion of mine for almost two decades. Not only do I have an immense love of the art of basket weaving, but I also genuinely enjoy teaching others how to weave. Here in Wisconsin; I am an instructor of many workshops for all levels of basket weavers. From beginners, to intermediates and the more advanced, I love teaching new weaving techniques in addition to showing other weaving enthusiasts how to work with the newest materials available. I offer a complete line of the finest basketry supplies, kits, handles, tools, spray stains, reeds and of course, my handcrafted baskets.

If you are interested in owning one of my famous “Nantucket style purse” which is my own design, let me know and I will make one to your unique specifications. Due to the many hours of work involved in creating the one of a kind purse, I require half of the payment in advance and the balance before I send it out. I will send pictures before I send the purse to you. Every purse includes a cloth liner and a handmade leather strap.

I welcome you to take a look through the website to see more of the products and services I offer at The Basket Patch. For more information, please feel free to send me an email at

Nesting Nantuckets! These beautiful baskets are woven on a mold. Check with me about hosting a class!
