TSWG Restores Lincoln Cane Rocker for Old World Wisconsin
Besides demonstrating various kinds of chair seat weaving techniques our members will also be reweaving the cane seat and back on a Lincoln rocker for the Old World Wisconsin museum.
Very much in keeping with our mission and purpose, which is to educate the public about the craft and to perpetuate it so these techniques are not lost to future generations.
Drive safely and hope to see you all there in Eagle, WI at Old World Wisconsin. This is a public tourist attraction, so even if you are not a member attending our Gathering, you can still partake of all the fun stuff we are doing with and for the visitors!
