Basket Bits Magazine

Pat's brother, Jim Rutherford, was the original editor of Basket Bits Magazine. Pat helped with nearly every issue. There is a nearly complete set 31 - 70 (missing 3 issues) of Basket Bits under Sandra Bulgrin. Individual issues are listed under magazines on the Sale Page.

Basket Bits Magazine

(edited by Sandra Bulgrin)
Set of issues under Sandra Bulgrin - 31-70. missing #43, 61, 65.

These are used, but in good condition. (some have labels or sticky dots to hold closed for shipping) There are great articles & patterns in these magazines. Issue #31 was published in Aug., 2000. #70 - Feb. 2011. 37 issues total.

This would be a great addition to a new basketmaker's library.
