Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Farmhouse Gathering on Artfire - Joannas Collection

Welcome friend! Today I have a member from the Farmhouse Gathering on Artfire for you to meet. Come and visit the shop of Joanna Collections. This shop is filled with wonderful handwoven baskets. Taking a class in 1991 at a church camp in Northern Wisconsin, she became hooked on the art of basket weaving. I can so relate to this. This wonderful basket weaver is bless to live on a 20acre hobby farm in Eastern Minnesota. She has not only raised food but nine children. She not only weaves but teaches basket weaving to adults at different public schools. Nothing better then sharing your love of basket weaving with others. Below are some of the baskets she has in her shop. Enjoy your visit and remember you can type AFG into the search bar on Artfire to find more great shops from this talented team.
