Northeast Basketmakers Guild Membership

The Northeast Basketmakers Guild (NBG) was founded in 1985 by a group of five Connecticut basketmakers. Since then, the organization has grown to include hundreds of artists.

Members are predominantly from the northeastern United States, but now include artists from around the world.

The mission of the Northeast Basketmakers Guild is to further the art of basketry by nurturing the development of new basketmakers, while celebrating and supporting accomplished basketmakers.

Your membership gives you access to information about events and basketry news available through the website and email.

The members-only page on the website will contain the newsletters published throughout the year.

There are also yearly scholarships awarded to members for furthering their knowledge and skills of basketweaving.

Renewing members need to log into this website to renew.  If you do not know your password, the “Lost your password” link will let you set a new one.  If this is renewal and you have a new mailing or email address, please let us know.

There is a list of NBG members on the Members Only page of this website.  That page is only available after you have logged into the site, so only NBG members can see the list.  We want to give you control over your information so we are now asking if we can put your address, city, state, email address and phone number on the list.  You can include any or none of this information.  NBG members use this list to contact members they have met at our events, or to find other basketmakers who live nearby.
