About NWA Basket Works

Behind the Baskets

Alison Marie Guffey is the proud owner of NWA Basket Works and is the professional basket-weaver behind all of the beautiful baskets. Based in Northwest Arkansas, Alison works to create unique and durable baskets that are not only functional, but are one-of-a-kind pieces of art! NWA Basket Works was officially established in 2021, but Alison has been growing her small business and connecting with the Northwest Arkansas community for over a year. 

Hours of Dedication

Alison discovered basket-weaving in college and learned step-by-step how to make a basket from scratch. She wove over two hundred baskets while earning her degree in Child Development and Psychology at the College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri. Since graduating in May 2021, Alison has woven over two hundred more baskets! 



Baskets For Everyone

Not only does Alison have long background in creating baskets, she has had the privilege of designing and weaving baskets for notable people such as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, previously the White House Press Secretary for President Trump and Newt Gingrich, a U.S. Politician. She has the dream of creating baskets that appeal to all kinds of people. 

One of Alison’s goals is “to never make the same basket twice.” She promises her clients one of a kind baskets, which she takes very seriously. With over 400 baskets created, and with no plans to stop, Alison still has so many designs, patterns, and styles she wants to create.
