When I visited Texas last year I saw a antique chair and the seat had been redone by weaving vintage men's neckties for the seat. I would love the have the directions for doing this. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me with this craft information.

I teach a course in weaving chair seats out of neckties. The next time you're in Maine, please stop in and I'll show you some. Or, better yet, sign up for my weekend class and enjoy a vacation in Maine! Check it out at http://www.artnightout.com/ . The next necktie class is in October! Thanks and good luck -

Good idea, Betty! Here is a website for a Necktie Chair seat that shows you how:

This is probably just conicidence, but I live in Copperas Cove, Texas and we have a little coffee shop in town and they have a chair with the seat weaved in neckties!! They have mismatched chairs and tables, and large grapevine hanging from the ceiling. It's a really cute place!
