Bea Fisher makes these chair seats from neckties. She cuts the wide parts off and uses the straighter parts to weave for a very sturdy seat. She has been generous enough to share some of the wide points with me which are perfect for making yo-yo embellishments for other projects. I cannot resist these chairs. I have several, plus a foot stool. Last summer I bid on a whole set of ladder backed chairs at the Grace Hospital Auction in Townshend, Vermont. I was able to get the chairs for $10 a piece. I took them to Fisher Hill and dropped them off as a gift to Bea. Later she sold me the chairs. For a good price.
Here is the stool. Sam Battiglino wanted it too, but it was at the Silent Auction for the Christmas Fair for the Grafton Church. I must have outbid him, because it is at my house now.
