Did you use the National Furniture Repair Directory™–Seatweaving section to find an repair expert? But they’re located far away from you, maybe in another state?
Well, you’re in luck if you have the type of chair seat that can be removed from the framework. Let your chair caning expert know you have this type of seat, unscrew it from the frame, then pack it well and ship it off to them.
Be sure to prepay for the shipping both ways and send the return shipping label inside the package along with the seat.
That way if the shipping address is destroyed, smudged or anything else has happened to it, someone could open the package and know where it is going and/or where to send it back.
Then after all the repairs are completed the weaver can just send it back to you. Viola!
