Albany--  When it comes to building a better basket a group that stopped in South Georgia Saturday takes the cake.

The Georgia Basketry Assocation held their annual meeting in Albany Saturday morning. The group of basket making ethustists used their time together to teach each other new weaving techiques and talk about whats new in the world of baskets.

"It's a very relaxing hobby and it as you can see from our group we have a lot of fun. It's a good way to get together and make new friends and learn a craft at the same time," says GBA state president Cindy Lampman.
