About the instructor
Vickie Echols fell in love with gourds when she went to her first gourd festival in 2000. She was so inspired by what she saw that it has become her passion and full-time business. Vickie enjoys her travels to gourd festivals, basket guilds and private classes around the country.
Vickie describes her work as "Using Nature". With encouragement from her patch, Vickie started teaching pine needle coiling on gourds and has been enjoying it for 19 years. Vickie took up pottery during high school and feels this has inspired her pine needle basketry.
