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.  Won’t you join us, learn with us, and share with us!
