Did You Know
  • When using binder cane, separate the long strands from the short strands before you start your project.
  • In seat weaving, if you use the longs trands first, your project will go quicker, and you will have less binder to attach.
  • You can join binder together on the underside of the chair by using a paper stapler to hold the pieces together. When the job is complete, you can pull out any staples that are showing.
