Sarah received the Best in Baskets award in Living with Crafts and the Best in Weaving award for both at the annual League of NH Craftsmen Fair, Mt. Sunapee in 2017. Sarah learned this technique at a conference, taught by Oregon ply-split artist Linda Hendrickson. Sarah was juried in to the League of NH Craftsmen for her baskets in May 2017.
