  1. Hello Cathryn,
    I recently came across a set of metal chairs that need the rushed seats replaced. It’s a project I want to work on, but admit, I’m not sure how to start the rushing on a metal frame. Can you give me any advice?

    1. Hi Carol,

      Have you done a lot of rush seat weaving before? If so, it’s just like weaving a wooden frame with the exception of the starting strip and the “gussets” if it’s a trapezoidal seat. Instead of using upholstery tacks or staples to attach the short rows in the gussets, you could use masking tape, duct tape, or even cable ties to attach to the metal framework. See my blog post that deals with a few ways of attaching rush to the rails. Good luck and I hope it turns out well for you.

  2. Hi, I want to know how I can order from Levair Basket and Cane supply Company or any other cane supply company in your directory, for that matter. I don’t see a link to their shop or product page. Please advise. Thanks

    1. Hi Meg,

      Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the links on the Cane and Basket Supplies Directory™ page. But all you need to do is to click on the coral colored business name/link and you will go right to their site. Hope this helps! Let me know if the links are still not working for you.

    1. Hi Anne,

      So sorry that you missed seeing the National Furniture Repair Directory™ link in the navigation bar at the top of every page and also on the Start Here page as well as in the footer. You can follow this link and then go to the state where you are living to see if there’s a chair caning repair pro listed close to you. If not, be sure to check the surrounding states. Thanks for your question, glad I could help you out!
