She holds a BFA degree in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology and has been working with wood since 1972. Her love of chair restoration began in high school when she repaired chairs and other fine furniture for an antique refinisher in Dublin, Ohio.
Mindy's Skills Include:
|SeatWeaver's Guild||Weaving Information|
|Hand Caning all patterns of seats ||
In the spring of 2007, I invited chair caners and seat weavers from across North America to build an organization dedicated to the preservation of the seat weaving arts.
They agreed and 18 founding members from 7 states and Canada gathered one muggy July weekend in Nelsonville, Ohio to write our mission statement and bylaws.
In 5 years we have grown to 80 members and meet each summer to share techniques, patterns and wisdom. We also hold events open to the public in an effort to inspire new weavers.
Please visit the official guild website to learn about us and join us at the next gathering.
