"Thanks for the Basket and the repairs"; JM, June, 2017.
Thank so much.......Summerfield Workshop
"Thanks so much to both you & David for such a great workshop! I really appreciate all your help & all Dave’s finishing details — came home with 3 baskets that I just love & most of the work is already done — just have to do some lashing one one and then tung oil treatment! I know it takes a lot of time & work to pull these off — & love the relaxed atmosphere — the individual attention and the great food. Thanks for everything!"; C, June, 2017.

HNCB Nantucket Workshops...
"Thank you for all that you do for me. I had a lovely time. I will always be at your events as often as I can. My husband loved the sour wood (for the Bee Skep Basket). We have several trees on the property in the mountains. The dates are on my calendar"; MCA, Sept. 2016
"A little late with my thanks, but just wanted you both to know how much I appreciate your hard work giving these great Workshops. We learn something every day that we attend class, and no matter how long you have been weaving you always need to learn a little something extra. Just wanted you both to know you are appreciated and your lunches are delicious"; BB, Sept. 2016

I'm a new weaver....
I'm a new weaver of Nantucket baskets, having been weaving now for about a month. So far, I have woven three baskets, with more on my molds now. I currently own an 8" and a 6" open round mold. I am COMPLETELY enthralled with is art, and have been getting many compliments, and now requests to purchase my baskets......I learned to weave by examining baskets, watching an interesting YouTube video of a maker talk about the process, but not really showing much, and a small pamphlet from H.H. Perkins. I recently purchased your new co-authored book The Nuts and Bolts of Nantucket Baskets, which has further helped me with approaches to making these beautiful creations. Thanks to your book, I am now set on making under-lashing a standard part of my work.."; NB, July , 2016
This is an excellent reference book...
"This is an excellent reference book with lots of pictures. The back cover says it has over 250 photos and I believe it. It is great for both beginning weavers and more advanced weavers. With chapters like "Steps for Making a Nantucket Basket" to chapters on "Rims"and "Finishing the Nantucket Basket" this book has something for everyone. I have already bookmarked the chapters on "Rims" and "Handles". There are also plenty of helpful "Tips" throughout the book. This is my new favorite reference book!"; Cheryl's book review on Amazon, July, 2016.
