One of the rewards of being a business owner is the wonderful people that I connect with. It truly makes my day when I open my email and kind notes and pictures of your creations.
Ina's Kumihimo Baskets really intrigued me. Her braids are 16 strands of Perle Cotton and then coiled into the shape of a basket. I just love this.
what Ina has to say about her journey with Kumihimo!
"I was shown basic formation of Kumihimo approximately 15 years ago and from there I have basically self taught sourcing patterns from Google and Jacqui Carey books and of course your (What a Braid) newsletters.
I enjoy challenging myself and trying new ideas and ways to incorporate Kumihimo with other crafts that I do i.e. baskets,cords for handbags braids to enhance bags especially flat braids.
I find Kumihimo very relaxing and a help to keep my joints working as I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis".
Thank you Ina.
Think of the possibilities!
