News-Antique.com - Dec 17,2008 - NELSONVILLE, Ohio, December 17, 2008--
The SeatWeavers’ Guild organized in July of 2007 and the first national United States chair caning guild of its kind, launched its new website, SeatWeaversGuild.org earlier this summer.
The main purpose in forming the guild was to promote the craft of chair caning and wicker repair. And make the public aware these crafts are not “lost arts,” but are instead viable, strong and practiced throughout the US.
The guild, established for chair caners and all types of seat weaving enthusiasts across the US and Canada, holds an annual meeting with workshops and classes. Other membership benefits are a newsletter, advertising opportunities, education for its members and now a global presence through the new website.
The site features a brief history and establishment of The SeatWeavers’ Guild, membership information, photo gallery, events calendar and resource links. There are also plans for a possible discussion forum, advertising directory, and direct membership application form.
The SeatWeavers’ Guild is currently around 60 members strong and includes chair caning beginners, hobbyists, professionals, enthusiasts, and supporters of the craft. New members are always welcome and will eventually be able to apply for membership directly from the website.
