Northwest Basket Weavers

Vi Phillips Guild


The Northwest Basket Weavers, Vi Phillips Guild was established in 1982.  The purpose of our Guild is to preserve and promote the art of basket making.  Our members are wonderful people whose skills and knowledge vary from folks who just love baskets to beginning basket weavers to professional artists, teachers and collectors.  Please join us, learn with us, and share with us!


<> The Future of Guild Meetings: Hybrid In-Person/Zoom.  To continue reaching our distant members, our plan is to “live-stream” in-person meetings via Zoom.  More on this once the future begins to merge with the present.

<> 2021 Retreat (Weave in Spring) has been CANCELLED due to Covid.  


<> “Let’s Talk Baskets” – YouTube video of Zoom presentation given to the Whatcom County Library System (3/13/21) by Guild Members Vicky Nickelson, Jill Green, Richard Vogt and David Chambers.
