Caning Canada Woven Furniture Repair


Seat Weaving While RVing


Saving Woven Treasures One Chair at a Time

Caning Canada provides expert woven furniture repair services.


My husband David and I have rented our house, allowing us to travel this beautiful country in our RV while bringing our furniture weaving services to a town near you.


We're getting ready to hit the road from the Vancouver area and head East for the summer. 


Thanks for the good times Vancouver area and the successful first Vancouver Island meets.


Quick stops in Calgary and Winnipeg and then off to Ottawa until the full. 

We're planning meets in Toronto, Kingston, and Montreal.

How we Price Weaving Projects

Caning Canada wants to make the restoration of your woven family heirloom or newly discovered treasure obtainable. 


Our pricing is based on the weaving style, the material used, and the attachment process, not the value of the woven piece you need to repair.

Estimates

For a furniture weaving repair estimate, please send a photo of your project to [email protected] or text us at

403-613-5801


showing the entire piece, the top and the bottom.


I will need your location and contact details for our booking list.

Sometimes we come upon a piece that is available to be restored. Caning Canada loves providing these beautiful pieces with a new lease on life and keeping them out of our landfills. 


You can find the treasures we've rescued and restored in our shop,

If you want to donate your piece to keep it out of the landfill or sell your Mid Century Modern or caned furniture, feel free to send us a message.


Let me know which part of this beautiful country your piece lives in so I can add your details to our booking list if we are currently out of your area.


A couple of photos would be great so we know what type of chairs you have.


If you're selling your chairs, how much do you want?


Caning Canada will restore every piece we add to our online shops for re-homing, so please understand that we cannot offer you what we list our chairs for in the shop. We will easily spend two to three days restoring a piece and then weave it with new material before posting it for sale.

Mail Your Piece for Weaving

If you would like to mail your woven chair seats, backs, or shelves to Caning Canada for weaving repair, most chair seats and backs can be removed and posted to our winter site. 


Check out our shipping page for more details.

If you're concerned about meeting us in a parking lot with your family heirloom or you're wondering if we're for real, that's okay.


Check out what people say about Caning Canada with photos of the pieces we've restored for them.
