Bayberry Seatweaving is now located in Bellevue, Nebraska, just south of Omaha, after recently moving from Canton, Massachusetts. Owner, Ted Powell had his chair caning and seatweaving business in Canton for 15 years, providing chair caning and other seatweaving services in the surrounding area.
My mother was the Extension Service agent for Dukes County on Martha’s Vineyard – great place to grow up on!! She taught me how to refinish, cane, and rush furniture back in the sixties when I was about ten years old.
In Canton, I concentrated on single strand caning, pressed cane, paper rush, pre-twisted natural rush, and Danish cord. I intend to keep doing these same skills and incorporating other seat weaving types as the need arises.
In addition, I provide minor restoration, re-gluing, and refinishing. My turn-around times vary depending on what is needed and the complexity of the work. However, because I am “retired,” I can respond quickly. I provide free cost estimates and can usually do them using a few pictures and some seat measurements.

RS Peck offers caning, both handwoven and prewoven, in most patterns including the very difficult double-blind cane technique. I also do woodcarving of reproductions (such as missing sections on furniture and mirror frames) and original pieces.
I owned and operated a furniture restoration business in Racine, Wisconsin for 24 years, prior to closing in 2014. So if your piece needs gluing or repair, as is often required with chairs and rockers, I do provide that service.
Saggy Bottom Girls Caning has moved location! In August 2022 we moved our residence and business from Greenwood, Indiana to Salem, Alabama! We are now offering our chair seat weaving services in and around the Salem, AL area, which is 1 1/2 hours south of Atlanta between Columbus, GA and Auburn, AL.
We specialize in cane, fiber rush, seagrass, flat reed, binding cane, and others. We are a home-based family business and I personally weave each chair. We also work with local restoration companies should your chair need structural repairs.
I started this business several years ago as a way to spend time with my dad. People began asking me to fix their chairs with saggy bottoms and that is how the business began.
This is also how I came up with the name. It’s a play on the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” starring George Clooney, and my Saggy Bottom Girls Caning seemed like an interesting twist to their Soggy Bottom Boys band.
