Calling All Chair Caners!!! Help establish the very first National Chair Seat Weavers Guild, July 13-15, 2007 in Nelsonville, Ohio. Become a charter member of this guild -- binding and weaving together the fabric of the craft.
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Do you cane chairs for a living, hobby or just for the sheer enjoyment and tranquility that weaving can bring? Anxious to join a guild, to belong to a like-minded group of interesting folks, to share techniques, and help promote this nearly lost art?
Never heard of a Chair Seat Weaver's Guild before? Well, now's your chance to get in on the ground floor to help establish and organize just such a group!
A few months ago, Mindy King, chair seatweaving expert from Ohio, remarked on the Seatweaving Forum ( http://disc.server.com/Indices/220033.html ) that she'd like to see a guild start up so we could all band together to form a national group.
Well, one thing after another fell into place for our very first meeting to set up the North American Chair Weavers Guild (it's possible that the name might change, but it's what we're calling ourselves for now).
Mindy's arranged the venue to hold the meeting so we can write the constitution, elect officers, establish goals for the group and plan our first real "conference," "workshop" or "convention " for 2008!
The meeting will be held on July 13, 14 & 15, 2007 in Nelsonville, Ohio at Robbins Crossing, a recreation 1800s village in Nelsonville on the campus of Hocking College, about 60 miles from Columbus, Ohio. Special rate rooms are blocked off for attendees of this group at a near-by hotel.
Pre-registration is required, space is limited, and registration closes July 1, 2007. So contact Mindy King, ASAP for registration packet and hotel/camping information. Also contact her if you want to be a member of the guild, but can't make this first organizational meeting.
Bring your organizational skills, your CPA, accounting, tax or office expertise to help us establish the very first chair seating guild in America! (that we know of, anyway).
We appreciate any and all help to further advertise and promote this very unique group! Thanks to everyone for taking us this far already!
