Dear Friends of East Troy Basketry,

     We are considering retirement and are looking for someone who would like to continue East Troy Basketry into the future.  If you or anyone you know might be interested in owning and operating East Troy Basketry, please contact us.

Eileen will continue to teach basket weaving classes in our   home in Burlington, WI.  If you are interested in taking classes, contact her at: eileenmirs@gmail.com.

In the past 22 years we have gotten to know so many of you, some in person, some by phone, some by email.  Many of you have truly become friends.  Each one of you have helped us to keep East Troy Basketry thriving.  Thank you for allowing us to serve your basketry needs.  We have loved this opportunity.  One of our goals has been to further the art and craft of basket weaving.  For this reason, we would like to see East Troy Basketry continue into the future.

     Eileen and Jim Mirsberger
     East Troy Basketry Co.
