Billie Ruth Sudduth Carolina Snowflake


For over 30 years, Carolina Snowflakes have hung on Christmas trees, windows, and walls all over the world. According to Billie Ruth Sudduth, the Snowflakes started with a failed design.

I began my basket making career in 1983 in New Bern, North Carolina. There, I often demonstrated weaving at Tryon Palace. In 1984, when I tried to create a four-leaf clover during a demonstration but it looked incomplete. I then connected two of them and created an eight-point object and called the design a Carolina Snowflake. The Palace bought over 300 of them that year to hang in the windows at the Palace complex and to sell through their gift shop.
