Welcome to NBO!
The National Basketry Organization welcomes you. We invite you to explore our website…you will find information about our organization, our publications, our events and our members. This is your gateway to the lively world of American basketry!
Please sign up for Over/Under, our free monthly online newsletter which features news about our members, bulletins and links to more information.
Our magazine is The Quarterly Review. This glossy high quality magazine is sent to members four times a year. You will find articles from this publication here which we invite you to sample.
The Featured Member section is your link to our professional members. A click on a name and you will be able to learn more about them and see images of their work.
In the Gallery section, we have included images of work by our members as well as archives of images from some of our exhibitons. Several catalogs from these exhibitions, as well as NBO gear, are available in the Store which is located in the Resources section.
Looking for a guild, check Membership > NBO Links > Associations, Guilds & Schools. Looking for a class or an exhibition, check the Calendar and Events section where you will also find information about our upcoming conference at Arrowmont in October 2013.
NBO is an inclusive organization. Our membership includes basket makers inspired by historical traditions and makers who are doing more sculptural work. We also count in our number many collectors and gallery owners. And lots and lots of people who just love baskets!
We hope that once you have learned more about our organization, you will join us in supporting American basket making by becoming a member and donating.
