Welcome to Bittersweet Baskets & Homestead Handles! We offer a wide variety of basket-making supplies, including basket patterns, basket kits, leather handles and a selection of wood bases made from superior white ash. We also offer leather accessories and bag finishing hardware for attaching leather handles to knitted, felted, crocheted and quilted bags. Take a look around to see our products for sale and be sure to check out our latest basket classes and events, too!
IMPORTANT NEWS: After several great years of supplying our customers with quality ash bases, Bittersweet Baskets has decided to close the base side of the business this upcoming October 1st. It is “bittersweet” news for us as we are sad to see this chapter close and have truly enjoyed this business over the years, but we are also excited that John will now get to officially enjoy his retirement! We have secured a buyer for the business and will keep you posted with the details on where you can continue to purchase bases as the time gets closer. In the meantime, OUR CURRENT WOOD SUPPLY IS VERY LIMITED so please check with Pat BEFORE you place an order.
