Seatweavers_logo_final

(TSWG) will be holding their 7th Annual Gathering in New England from July 25-27, 2014 .  At Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge Massachusetts at a beautiful time of year

The Guild is the only seat weaving guild in North America.  TSWG is a non-profit educational group organized to promote and perpetuate the age-old craft of chair seat weaving. Their  members are craftsmen, teachers and restoration artists with a deep desire to pass on the chair seat weaving trade to the public, so it doesn’t truly become a “lost art.”    Our Chair Restoration page  has inspired them!
