That sounds like a good solution I will give it a go.

Hi all,
          I was wondering if there is an easy way to delete all the 
items in a GooCanvasTableModel without having to keep a list of all the 
items you added to the table and then deleting them one by one?
    

You can get the number of children with:

  n_children = goo_canvas_item_model_get_n_children (table);

then remove them with something like:

 for (i = 0; i < n_children; i++)
   goo_canvas_item_model_remove_child (table, 0);
