Linda Allen

Basket weaving became part of her life after moving to Beaver Falls in the 1980’s. It didn’t take long for that creativity to come out. She opened a shop at her home in 1990 carrying basket supplies and her hand-woven baskets.

Linda works with a variety of materials, including reed, bark and most recently waxed linen and beads. She is known for her intricate patterns and for incorporating various materials into her designs.

Linda is the owner of Adirondack Basketry and an instructor with the Adirondack Folk School.
