So I finally finished re-caning one of my chairs. It took me longer than I thought, but I have been a lot busier than usually the last few weeks.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out. My husband and I did a "test sit", just to make sure that we wouldn't fall through. It feels very sturdy! I would definitely recommend re-caning your own chairs if you have the time. It costs significantly less than paying someone else do it and it feels very rewarding once it is complete. Now I need to order more supplies for the other chairs and teach my husband how to do it!
