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!
