Sue Morello is a retired teacher from the Spencer/East Brookfield School System where she taught third grade for 35 years. She first learned to make baskets more than two decades ago from a basket weaver in a neighboring town and has continued the tradition ever since. Her passion for basket weaving has led to an ever increasing selection of handmade basket designs. In addition to selling her baskets at many local craft fairs, Sue has taught hundreds of others how to weave their own. She hopes that you enjoy your visit to the site and welcomes any questions or comments that you may have.
