PInland Empire: Post Falls Woman Making Baskets

Posted: Updated:
POST FALLS, Idaho -

Marilyn Carter is quite the basket weaver. She started her hobby about forty years ago. "A really neat little old lady who was in Alaska taught me," Carter told us.

Carter is 86 years old and uses her craft to keep herself busy. Carter said, "I like it because you are accomplishing something. You don't feel like you are useless. You have something to show for the time you spend on this whole earth and you have something to show for it."

Carter longs to share her trade with anyone who would like to learn.

"I would be glad to show anyone who would like to learn it. I would be honored if they want me too...pretty soon it is going to be a lost art." Carter said.

If you would like to have Carter make a basket for you, just give her a call at 208-262-9494.
