The Lady Who Made Cornbead Baskets

Record #:
Mrs. Hill Wood of Randolph County spent much of her later life making baskets out of cornbeads grown beside her garden. People from surrounding counties came and bought her handicrafts, ranging from decorative pieces to fruit baskets, thus providing her only source of income. Neighborhood children tended to her chores, allowing her more time to hone her craft.
