My mother-in-law is moving to a smaller place and I now have three large boxes of basketry supplies in my living room. I’d love to donate them to someplace that can use them. Would your guild be interested?

Hi—It’s Sara here. If you received an email today that is signed by me as President of High Country and is asking for gift cards for veterans, please DO NOT respond to it. It’s a hack, or a fraud, or whatever that sort of thing is called. The email address it comes from is not mine. And we would never ask you for money or gift cards for anything like this.

High Country Basketry Guild Story

1985-Present

According to Guild records, the High Country Basketry Guild was formed in the Spring of 1985 “to stimulate interest in and perpetuate the art of basketry in the Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. areas.” The Guild’s name was intended to be The Hunt Country Basketry Guild, but when paperwork was submitted for a non-profit status, the name came back as High Country, and that has remained its name. The Guild received non-profit status around 1995.

For several years after its founding, the Guild’s main event was a Basketry Festival, co-sponsored with the Fairfax Park Authority’s Division of Historic Preservation. The festival was first held at the Dranesville Tavern, and it featured the sale of handmade baskets and supplies and lectures from noted basketmakers from several states. Later festivals expanded to include demonstrations of various weaving techniques, a display of traditional and contemporary baskets, lectures, children’s activities, judged exhibits, and a raffle.

At the outset, the Guild maintained a relationship with the Fairfax County Park Authority, which helped the early Guild with organization and provided meeting space at Dranesville and Colvin Run Mill Park. In return, the Guild provided basketry demonstrations at Sully Plantation and Colvin Run Mill.
