We received several comments expressing approval of an article in our last newsletter (May 2020) that told about the work of Riverton artists, past and present.
Joan Biddle, a longtime friend of the Society, suggested that we assemble a resource bank of historically oriented crafts people, much like we did recently for fine artists.
I like it! We need to hear about your endorsements with some photos, contact info, and a description of the their specialty.
The project that stirred our interest in creating such a list was a note from Joan asking if we could recommend someone to fabricate a new split-reed seat for a newly refinished antique “acorn” ladderback chair. The patterns vary for such seats but she aims to have the new seat constructed with similar material and pattern to match another chair.
We are working on getting a photo, but the chair is similar to this one above, plagiarized from the internet.
OK, I’ll start.
