At age 16 I learned the craft of hand caning from my mother who was a rehabilitation instructor first at the Toronto Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) and then the Calgary Institute for the blind (CNIB) 

I loved the art of weaving and started Caning Calgary in 1986 and have been providing woven chair repair services across Canada ever since.

Quality workmanship.

Good old fashioned client service with a skip in my step and a smile on my face.

Hi Laurie,

Thanks again for the excellent repairs of my three chairs last  weekend. They look great and I will bring one more so four of them will match.

And I really appreciate your immediate repairs so I did not have to make another trip to Calgary to pick them up.

Gerald

Hi Laurie,

I’ve been meaning to email you. Last week I unpacked and reinstalled the seats on all five chairs. They look and feel great. It is great to have our chairs back and like new again. Thank you for redoing the first chair – I think having the same size cane around the outside looks better.

I trust you received your payment from Canada Post in a timely manner.

All the best of the season!

Dan

Hi Laurie – I stopped in at Davidson’s on Monday and the caning on the chairs is perfect!  Thanks for doing them for me. 

Hi Laurie:
My wife and I are really impressed, not only at the super caning repair on our antique rocking chair but also in regards to the speed at which you completed everything.
I promise to oil the wicker twice a year and probably at time-change intervals. Only problem is that, under those circumstances, it might outlast us in longevity, meaning less business for you, so will be certain to pass your name to our daughter for future uses thereof.
Once again, many thanx!
