Carolina Snowflakes

For over 30 years, Carolina Snowflakes have hung on Christmas trees, windows, and walls all over the world. The Snowflakes started with a failed design.

Billie Ruth Sudduth’s basket making career began in 1983 in New Bern, North Carolina where she demonstrated her weaving process at Tryon Palace. In 1984, she tried to create a four-leaf clover during a demonstration but it looked incomplete. She then connected two of them and created an eight-point object and called the design a Carolina Snowflake. The Palace bought over 300 of them that year to hang in the windows at the Palace complex and to sell through their gift shop.

Later, Billie Ruth wrote a pattern booklet for the Carolina Snowflake which is copyrighted (VA 219 131) and she later copyrighted the design itself (VA 536 810).

Garlic Baskets

The Garlic Basket is a functional basket to hold garlic. Also a great gift item or hostess gift if you fill it with soap balls, herbal tea packets, or flower bulbs in the Spring. Empty – it is an art object. The handle is decorative as the baskets hangs on a small nail from the back. Garlic needs to breathe so this little basket is a great way to store two garlic bulbs.
