About East Troy Basketry
For 13 years, East Troy Basketry was a store located East Troy, Wisconsin. On September 1, 2013, we moved our business to our home to simplify our lives. We now do mail order through our online store, by phone and email.
We still offer only the highest quality and freshest materials we can find from the most reputable sources available.
During our 13 years in East Troy we met so many wonderful people that we will never forget. We offered classes up to 6 days a week and had 4 instructors on staff. Several other local teachers provided classes regularly and many nationally renowned guest teachers came to East Troy Basketry, stayed with us and became our friends including Flo Hoppe and John McGuire from New York, Patti Hawkins from Alabama, Anne Coleman from Kentucky, Regina Riley and Marlys Sowers from Iowa, Lisa Herout, Ann Krumpos, Linda Johnson, and Susan Eckles from Illinois, Cass Schorsch and Kathy Tessler from Michigan, Marla Helton, Karen Griffith and Sherian Cody from Indiana, Lyn Siler from North Carolina, Jill Choate from Alaska, Cathryn Peters from Minnesota, Judy Wilson from Georgia and Marlene Meyer, Tressa Sularz, Pam Talsky, Sandy Bulgrin, Annetta Kraayeveld, Mark Katz and Donna Kallner from Wisconsin and many more.
We miss our wonderful staff that we left behind and our loving English Cocker Spaniel, Cleo who died in March of 2013 Tucker and Willow are still with us in our home shop. Check out our staff and the story behind Tucker and Willow.
