Design your own basket

with rope and colorful fabrics

Visit our studio for a fun and relaxing craft experience for all ages!  We will provide you with lengths of our high quality 100% cotton rope and fabric strips in every color of the rainbow.  You wrap the fabrics around the rope and we'll sew it up for you into the basket of your choice - you can even pick custom elements like handles and finishes!  It's a little like "paint your own pottery" studios, without the fear of breaking things.

Check out the Calendar tab for walk-in availability, or book a private party today for groups of 4 or more.  This is a super birthday party option (and with a playground next door and three ice cream venues within view, it's a no-brainer for a group of kids!).  We also accommodate groups who are visiting the High Country:

  • Quilt retreats
  • Bachelorette parties
  • Girls Night Out events
  • Parent/child workshops

Wondering what to do on a rainy day in Blowing Rock and Boone?  This is a great indoor activity for kids AND adults ages 4-104.  Typical group times run around 45-60 minutes (smaller baskets) to 3 hours (larger baskets).  Still have questions?  Get in touch!
