For Beginners, Hobbyists and Professionals.
Founded (2004) & Moderated by Cathryn Peters    

Chair Caning Forum is TEN Years Old!

When I first started the Seatweaving & Chair Caning Forum–The Caner’s Community Hub™ on March 10, 2004, who knew it would still be flourishing TEN years later?

We’ve been socializing and helping others in the craft with answers to their questions, sharing helpful hints & tips, giving business solutions to perplexing problems, and just plain offering help and encouragement to keep this nearly “lost” art to continue for generations to come!

The SeatWeavers Guild, Inc.® (TSWG) was “born” on the Seatweaving & Chair Caning Forum, did you know that? Yes, it’s true! Mindy King had the bright idea to start the first and only chair caning guild in 2007 after much discussion on the chair caning forum. And I consented to being the first President, serving a total of four years!

Now the guild has come full circle though, as Mindy was elected President at the last Gathering in Georgia, August of 2013.

And those first 20 or so founding members of TSWG that met in Nelsonville, Ohio were all “member-participants” of the chair caning forum, first. (There has never been a membership fee for belonging to the chair caning forum, so I use the term “members” lightly).

How has the Seatweaving & Chair Caning Forum–The Caner’s Community Hub™ assisted you over the years? Won’t you too, help us keep this time-honored, traditional handcraft alive and well? Please share with us here and also through your favorite social networks!

~~Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much~~

Until Next Time, Happy Weaving!

  1. Hippo Birdee Two Ewe!!!

    Thanks to ewe and your 20 partners for creating a lasting legacy. It’s a treasure to us newbies.

    Now, I must check the Guild website for a way to order a nifty shirt with the logo. I have the bumper sticker that brings an occasional comment or question.

    1. Thanks for the post Laurie, I’m so glad you are benefitting from the Seatweaving & Chair Caning Forum! And your work is wonderful, you are really blossoming in this traditional craft, keep up the good work. You might also consider joining The SeatWeavers’ Guild, Inc.® too, it’s a great organization to belong to.

  2. Ohhh and many, many more Birthdays for the Forum !

    I am always happy to see that someone wrote in to the forum, and need help,
    or have a wonderful hint ! It is a “gift” every time.

    Thank you so much Cathryn !

    1. Thank you too Jan, where would we be without you? You’ve been giving and sharing your knowledge and insight on the seat weaving craft ever since I started the Chair Caning Forum and I thank you every day for it, old friend!

    1. Glad to have been of service to so many in the seat weaving craft; sharing, caring and helping others is what it’s all about. Thank you too Lori for being a member of the Chair Caning Forum, we’ve enjoyed your participation!
