Subject line: (First name), here’s your first installment of “Finding the Right Basket(s) to
Make – Discover 10 Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!”

Dear (first name)

Thank you for signing up for my “Finding the Right Basket(s) to Make – Discover 10
Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!” mini-ecourse.

Over the next several days you will be receiving additional installments in this series. If
you are truly serious about learning more about the different types of baskets that are
made around the world, then I hope you will take time to read each one carefully. In fact,
it would probably be a good idea to print out each installment and save it so that you can
refer to it in the future.

In this, the first installment of the “Finding the Right Basket(s) to Make – Discover 10
Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!” mini-ecourse, we are going to
discuss, “The Potato Basket and the Picnic Basket.”

There are dozens of baskets made and available around the world. These include but are
not limited to the following:

POTATO BASKET:

This is a common and very useful basket that will hold anything, not just potatoes.

It commonly is round or oval in shape and is constructed using a hoop or rim from which
ribs are attached.

Ears are also woven into the design of this style basket. Because it is made of very sturdy
reed materials and reinforced with a wooden rim and sometimes a wooden handle, this
type of basket will last for decades.

Many potato baskets constructed in the mid 1800s are considered heirlooms today,

PICNIC BASKET:

Almost any large basket can be used as a picnic basket, although there many baskets that
are designed for that use only.

Almost all baskets of this type are ribbed. Some picnic baskets are limited to contain only
the food needed to make the meal or celebration; however, other picnic baskets are
designed to hold several place settings of plates and flatware, along with a tablecloth and
napkins, along with the meal itself.
Many baskets in this category are lined with attractive fabrics, adding to the festiveness
of the occasion and to protect the actual basket from any soiling caused by spilled food or
drink.

Picnic baskets come in two varieties: single lidded and double lidded.

The double lidded basket is the more unique of the two while the single lidded variety is
by far the most common and least expensive.

Both varieties have handles attached with a God’s Eye for strength. Some picnic baskets
are sturdy enough to allow a person to sit on the lid.

Again, thank you for signing up for this mini-ecourse and I hope this installment has been
informative for you! Your next installment, covering the Cherokee Comb Basket and the
Nantucket Basket will arrive shortly.

Sincerely,

David Davis

There are dozens of baskets made and available around the world. These include but are
not limited to the following:

CHEROKEE COMB BASKET:

This is a small, lidded wall basket that was originally used in the Cherokee culture to
hold combs and other trinkets.

This basket is rectangular in shape.

As Native American culture melded into that of the white man, and as keys became part
of every day life, the basket was used to hold keys and a wide assortment of other items
around the home.

This basket frequently incorporates color and Native designs into its weave, a reflection
of the Cherokee culture

NANTUCKET BASKET:

This is one of the most beautiful and commonly seen baskets.

It is so named, “Nantucket,” because it originated on the small island of Nantucket,
Massachusetts.

Construction of this basket requires patience. It is made over a wooden mold, has a
wooden base, and is woven with cane.
The ribs are usually made of oak or another hard wood but also be constructed of heavy
cane or reed.

These round or oval baskets have a handle, attached by an “ear.” Nantucket baskets serve
a variety of uses including storage of knitting supplies, fruit, papers, and dozens of other
items.

Subject line: (First name), here’s your third installment of “Finding the Right Basket(s) to
Make – Discover 10 Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!”

Dear (first name)

Here’s your third installment of the “Finding the Right Basket(s) to Make – Discover 10
Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!” mini-ecourse. In this installment,
we are going to discuss, “The Utensil Basket and the African Tribal Basket.”

There are dozens of baskets made and available around the world. These include but are
not limited to the following:

UTENSIL BASKET:

This is a plaited (or braided) basket.

While the base is a plain twill weave, the sides are plaited diagonally. Sizes range from
quite small to very large.

Both are constructed in the same manner; however the large basket a neck of smaller
diameter. The utensil basket is most commonly round and designed to stand upright to
hold utensils dropped into it, handles first.

Another form of utensil basket is one woven into a rectangular shape and then divided
into sections to accommodate flatware such as knives, forks and spoons.

AFRICAN TRIBAL BASKETS:

Traditional African tribal baskets are both utilitarian and works of art.

Bowls from materials used on the African continent to construct baskets include sisal,
baobab bark, raffia palm, raffia bamboo, and an assortment of native grasses.

African tribal baskets are made using a variety of techniques including lattice twining,
coiling, and plaiting.

The Zulu tribe, from Southern Africa, traditionally used inverted coiled baskets to cover
their clay beer pots.

However, in the 1980s, migrant workers coming into the cities adapted their basket
making skills and began weaving plastic coated telephone wire to form attractive bowls.

These unique baskets are becoming increasingly rare, as workers have damaged their
hands on the wire and fiber optics have taken over the telecommunications industry.
I hope this installment has been informative for you! Your next installment, covering the
Lidded Key Basket and the Feather Basket, will arrive shortly.

Dear (first name)

Here’s your fourth installment of the “Finding the Right Basket(s) to Make – Discover 10
Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!” mini-ecourse. In this installment,
we are going to discuss, “The Lidded Key Basket and the Feather Basket.”

There are dozens of baskets made and available around the world. These include but are
not limited to the following:

LIDDED KEY BASKET:

Woven into many different shapes (round, oval, ellipse, etc.), this basket is also made in
many different sizes.

It has a single “D” handle from which it hangs on the wall.

While named “key basket,” it is used to hold dozens of different items, from papers to
buttons.

A God’s Eye is woven into each side of the basket to secure the handle.

Materials needed to construct an oval version of this basket include a “D” frame, an oval
hoop, round reed (ribs and lid rim) and flat reed (weavers).

FEATHER BASKET:

This unusual square-to-round lidded basket was originally used to gather feathers around
the farm or wherever poultry was raised.

Many researchers agree that this type of basket was also used as a shopping basket or
lunch basket.

The top, or lid, cannot be removed but can be raised and lowered quickly to keep the
feathers from blowing away. Construction of this basket is best for very experienced
weavers.

I hope this installment has been informative for you! Your next, and final, installment,
covering the Gift Basket and the Hot Air Balloon Basket, will arrive shortly.

Subject line: (First name), here’s your fifth installment of “Finding the Right Basket(s) to
Make – Discover 10 Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!”

Dear (first name)

Here’s your fifth, and final, installment of the “Finding the Right Basket(s) to Make –
Discover 10 Popular Types of Baskets & What They Are Used For!” mini-ecourse. In
this installment, we are going to discuss, “The Gift Basket and the Hot Air Balloon
Basket.”

There are dozens of baskets made and available around the world. These include but are
not limited to the following:

GIFT BASKETS:

These baskets have been common for centuries but have only become an actual business
over the past 50 or so years.

Today, dozens of vendors advertise and provide gift basket services over the Internet, as
well as from storefronts and toll-free phone lines.

Gift baskets, which can be made from any type of basket or vessel, most often reflect
themes such as wedding, baby, get well, holiday (Easter, Christmas, etc.).

HOT AIR BALLOON BASKETS:

Baskets or “gondolas” woven of rattan wicker are traditionally attached at the bottom of
hot air balloons to transport passengers.

These baskets hold the balloon operator or “pilot’ and up to 30 passengers.

The use of gondolas dates back to the 1700s when hot air ballooning began in Europe,
following the discovery of hydrogen.

Hot air balloon baskets are designed so that the weight inside the basket (fuel tanks,
gauges, pilot and passengers) is transferred directly to the load tapes or ropes of the
“envelope” or balloon.

Rattan wicker is most commonly used, due to its light weight, strength and flexibility.
