PROJECT SHARE: all in this together - separately

JUST A HEADS UP:  Submissions are beginning to lag with the summer season upon us.  We post as we have enough available.

PROJECT SHARE:  together - separately 

HOW IT STARTED:  I sent out an email that asked "what's your quarantine project" and some of you took me at my word and sent photos.  I got to thinking we're all in the same boat and I bet others would like to see what projects we're working on so PROJECT SHARE began.  Think of it as a global SHOW and TELL to keep us all inspired.

If you'd like to share your work wonderful  - I'd love to post it.  Whatever craft project your working on and want to share is fine.  Submissions are NOT limited to just basketry projects.  

CAN I GET IT IN A KIT?  Please remember that the submissions are NOT my work.  I can get you in contact with the artist and you can check with them as to whether they offer kits and/or patterns.   The best way to obtain the artists information is to send me an EMAIL to jill@jchoatebasketry.com.   Please  note PROJECT SHARE and whatever the day is so we both are on the same page.  If you message me I can't see what your referring to so please let me know what you are requesting by stating PROJECT SHARE and Day # (fill in the blank) in your email. 

 SUBMIT:  PLEASE MAKE SURE that you put your name in the email and what country your in (i.e. JILL CHOATE - IDAHO USA)  PLEASE SEND an EMAIL with an ATTACHMENT of your photo - you can do so by clicking here. 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:  

"Thanks for project share.  Fun to see everyone’s creative side", Marcia F.

"What a fabulous idea to share these wonderfully creative projects from around our country! They are candy for the eyes in this pandemic climate!", Cyndi L.
"Thanks for this  great idea.Sure helps pass the shelter in place", Arlene E.
"This is the greatest thing to look at and to look forward to.  I too am isolating myself in my home and am making baskets, knitting and weaving pouches.  It’s kind of fun to have to stay home which means that every morning I try to finish up a project or find or design and new basket to make.  The longer I’m here the more creative I get.  Your “Project Share” fits right into my morning, and helps to inspire me into new dimensions etc.   Thank you for doing this." Alice L CANADA
"Enjoying seeing all the shared submissions. Basket weaving with Black Ash is my way of keeping my mind busy in Nova Scotia. Keep up the good work and all what you do to get the creative juices flowing.  It has been a great distraction from what is happening in the world." Florence W. CANADA
"I LOVE seeing all the work on Project Share.  Getting so many ideas.  I'm submitting a basket of my own design inspired by my winter trip to the Gulf of Mexico.  I was at your retreat two years ago and have been riffing off what I learned there (especially Indian Blanket) ever since, including dyeing reed and combining patterns.  Stay well and keep teaching us" - Debbie B
"You probably have received many notes of thanks.    I wanted  to add my note of gratitude.   While under stay home orders that are still in place here in Maine, I have to say that I have looked forward to getting your daily e-mail featuring the beautiful creations of talented  basketweavers.  I am also pleased to see masterpieces other than baskets.  The piles of protective masks, the woven COVID-19 virus, and the woven mask that someone sported in their photo, were heartwarming to see. " Ida A.
"Like so many others I have really enjoyed the offerings and you being willing to include my funny little wire “sculpture “ early on in Project Share. I work now in telehealth as a psych nurse practitioner 3 days a week and had a cancer return to deal with. I love being connected with all these creative people and it keeps my spirits up at a time of added stress. Love your work, Jill. And this added gift to those of us sheltering in place. 🥰🙏🎶😷" Mary D
"I look forward to seeing what basket pictures are coming in the next batch or on Day whatever.  They are an inspiration to anyone who weaves.  I love looking at them and looking forward to see what is next.  This reminds me when I was young and we always looked forward to getting the mail since it held treasures that we would anticipate for a month or maybe more.  Thanks so much for your work in putting this together.  You are amazing." Alice

"Just want to join others who have thanked you for starting, and then continuing Project Share. Not only does it increase the social interaction between all of us basket cases who are hunkered down during the pandemic, it prods all of us to take on something more challenging as we look at what others have accomplished. I can’t help but want to try a fascinating basket I see displayed here; my kit purchases have increased dramatically during recent weeks!" - Adele C

Jill, This is so much fun! I love seeing what everyone is doing. When I came out to Idaho for the Western Retreat the Twins gave everyone adorable quilted hot bowl holders for the microwave. We LOVE ours and I think of those sweet ladies and that wonderful retreat every time I use them. If you are in touch with them, please give them my best and thank them for me.
Happy weaving with well washed hands!
