Shaker seats look best when woven with 2 different colors. There are two terms you should know when weaving with Shaker Tape. One is called the warp. The warp is anchored to the side rails and then wrapped around the front and back rails in adjoining rows. A second length is called the weft. The weft is woven under and over the strands that form the warp. You can join loose ends by sewing them together, or by weaving them back on themselves, ensuring that the rows always remain parallel.
To determine the quantity of 1″ width Shaker Tape you'll need for your project just multiply the widest width by the widest length and then divide by 9.
For instance, if your chair seat is 10" wide and 18" long the formula is: 10x18/9= 20 yards.
