" I began during a walk one autumn day on my parents farm. I came across some willow shoots and thought it would be fun to try weaving a basket. I walked back to get a pruning shears, cut the willows, studied one of my parents' baskets and made my first very primitive looking basket." 

Over the years Sharon has made many styles and sizes of baskets. The largest basket Sharon made was a clothes hamper and a clothes basket and the smallest is an 8 inch wide ans 3 inch high fruit/bread basket.
