Anne Easby is a long-time resident of Fredericton. She has taught herself a variety of crafts from stained glass to cement works to chainsaw carving. Several years ago, while spending the winter in Florida, she discovered the art of making pine-needle baskets. One of the things that appeals to her is that, as is the case with most of her crafts, the baskets are all made with natural and recycled materials.
