    Excellent product

    I purchased this for my MIL for Christmas. She was so pleased with it. It is so well made and a great size to hold all her yarn. They had wonderful customer service when I called with questions about shipping times. The product arrived in great shape and on time. I especially love the “feet” on this basket.

    Beautiful basket

    Absolutely stunning. The workmanship is perfection. I ordered the gray colored basket but it’s more of a brown. It’s still beautiful. Also, it took 2 months to receive this basket but it was worth the wait. I intend to purchase more Peterboro baskets.

    We enjoy the laundry, bicycle and storage baskets and look forward to purchasing other baskets as needed.

    The basket is beautiful and well made. Took a while to get it but that’s the trade off for hand made in NH USA.

    I already owned one of these baskets, but couldn't resist buying one in cherry. And it is absolutely beautiful! It is the handiest basket I own. I keep all my cross stitch work in it and it stays safe and clean.

    Knitting basket

    I love my Peterborough baskets. Well made sturdy baskets. My mother had one for over 10 years. The last year of her life we had full time care givers who totaled destroyed it. I am trying to repair it. It also had a liner, which is necessary for yarn but it was not saleable. Wish you would bring liners back to compete with Longaberger

    Great Basket

    Posted by Pat Kubeika on May 18th 2016

    I purchased this basket as a housewarming gift for my daughter. I have had one of these baskets sitting beside my chair for as long as she can remember. Since she has moved out she has teased me that she is going to steal it someday. She was thrilled when I gave her one of her own the day she moved into her first home. The quality and the workmanship is just as good as it was on the one I purchased so many years ago. There aren't many things we can purchase today and know that with a little care our grandchildren will be able to use them also.

    I do a lot of knitting and have been using a plastic container to hold my yarn and needles. I am so excited to have this basket which is a great size for so many things!
