Well, I’m off to see the wizard–the wonderful wizard of woodworking! Leaving for the 1,600 round trip journey in just a few minutes!
For all of you that are not familiar with woodworking, building furniture and the like, Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Franklin, Indiana is just about the best there is.
My car is packed to the roof with all the footstools my 10 students will be weaving on, along with all the materials and handouts they will need to complete their projects. See Cathryn’s Classes to read all about these exciting chair caning classes.
Looking forward to meeting Marc, the staff and all my students. Watch out MASW, here comes The Wicker Woman!

We have 6 vintage dining chairs from a relative who passed away. 4 of the chairs need the seats recaned. We wish we could find a place to donate to that teaches caning, so they can be given a new life. We live in Long Beach, CA.
First, so sorry for the loss of your family member. And with the second portion of your comment, you can go to the National Furniture Repair Directory™ and look for restore experts in California to connect with someone that might take your donations. Good luck and thanks for your thoughtfulness.
It would be nice if you had a class near me(Sturgis, Mi.) that I could attend.
All you need to do is to set up an area that we can hold a class, like through one of the Basket Guilds in Michigan or something of that nature and get at least 10 students to register and I will come to teach any type of chair seat weaving you want!
Were you aware that The SeatWeavers’ Guild, Inc. held our last annual Gathering at Tillers International in Scotts, Michigan last year? Too bad you couldn’t have attended that event, we had a great time and even had our first chair seating exhibit there, open to the public.
Next year in 2012 our Gathering will be held in Wisconsin, so maybe you can attend that one? Keep up with the schedule as it’s announced here on my website in the Events Calendar page and also on TSWG website and Facebook page.
Happy Weaving and thanks for writing!
I took your class at Marcs last weekend and loved it. Thanks I learned lots. Still want to lean hole caning
Thanks for leaving the comment Paul, I really enjoyed teaching at Marc Adams School of Woodworking and will be submitting a proposal for teaching the hole-to-hole chair caning class for next year, if I haven’t already missed his deadline. Hope to see you again soon, thanks for taking the class it was fun for me, too!
