Why I charge what I do

Posted by Webmaster on January 20, 2018 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

I received a call from a refinisher in British Columbia yesterday confirming what I charge to replace pre-woven cane. They were concerned that my price hasn't changed in years. It seemed like the individual was trying to convince me to increase my prices as replacing pre woven cane is a lot of work. It is true it is a lot of work. It is a lot of work to complete any of the weaving styles I offer.

I charge what I believe is a fair price, for quality workmanship, in a timely manner just like my website says. I keep my prices as they are so that repairing woven pieces is attainable for hopefully anyone and I am making a decent wage and paying my bills. Granted for some weaving projects I make less than minimum wage; I choose to do this as I enjoy what I do and I want everyone to be able to have their woven furniture repaired if it is required. Have yourselves a truly awesome day.

Laurie Blake has been a second generation speciality chair weaver since 1986. I love weaving all types of chairs. I mostly see hand caned chairs and fibre rush chairs. For some reason Danish cord chairs seem to come in spurts. Lately I have been doing a lot of teak chairs in the rush pattern using Danish cord material. The Danish cord material seems to bring a totally different look to the rush pattern. I truly enjoy weaving chairs and find it a pleasure to restore your family heirloom or newly discovered treasure. I look forward to providing you quality workmanship. At a fair price. In a timely manner. Because that's what I do. Good old fashioned client service with a skip in my step and a smile on my face.
