Today marks the 2 year anniversary since I began Emza's Chair Caning and weaving repair as a full time business!
In the past year I have restored..... drum roll please..... 200 chairs, rockers, stools, benches, canoe seats, rocking horses, child's chairs, high chairs, etc.... Holy. Moly.
A big thank you to my husband who has put up with our house being perpetually full of chairs! And for being an extra set of hands to help me remove old weaving. I couldn't do it without him
This summer also marks the 19th year since I first learned how to cane from my father and began to help him with his business (now retired).
My 3rd year is going to be an interesting one as we will be welcoming our first baby after Christmas. I will be taking some time off to spend with our new little member of the family and then getting back into the workshop any way I can!
Here is to an expectant and very exciting 3rd year!
