My chair weaving adventure began while searching for a solution to the worn out rush seats on two of my dining room chairs. Weaving fabric seats was the answer! I fell in love with the look and the process!
Since finishing my own chairs I’ve been on the lookout for vintage chairs with worn out seats. I rescue and refinish or paint them and weave new seats with 100% cotton fabric strips. Some are colorful, some are neutral... but each is unique!
I enjoy designing custom chairs for gifts (chairs make great baby and child gifts!) or to fit individual decor. "Spirit Chairs" (sports and school-themed) are especially popular and make great gifts for the sports-enthusiast or college alumnus. Do you have chairs with worn out seats? Let me weave new life into them. I especially love to create "Memory Chairs" from your family's vintage chairs, weaving with loved one's clothing, thus creating a treasured family keepsake.
Sometimes a chair is in such sad condition that it can't be saved as a seat. But it can be repurposed into other useful things: wall shelves and a variety of wall hanging racks or garden/porch chairs.
I hope you'll check out the photos of items I have currently available and view some of my custom work. Then contact me; I'd love to talk chairs with you!
