This little book was published by the Agricultural Extension Service of The Ohio State University.  It was adapted from an earlier booklet, but there is no publishing date.  From the appearance of the furniture, it appears to have been made in the 50s or 60s.  This softcover book has 36 pages with many diagrams and black and white photos of the process of reupholstering a chair.  Detailed step by step instructions are included.  There is also an added paper included that has a yardage chart to help you determine how many yards of fabric you may need for your project.  Learn a new skill set for a great side hustle, or go into business for yourself.

There are no marks inside the book, but there is a library stamp and writing on teh upper right part of the front cover, as this is a deaccessioned library book.  There is a space about 2 inches by 1 inch that looks like a moisture stain in the same area of the front cover.but it has not leaked through into the book.  There is a small sticker on the back cover.  None of this will effect use of the book.

Vintage items have lived a previous life, thus they may show signs of wear, such as stains, creases, tears, foxing, marks or pinholes. We do our best to describe accurately.

Some patterns may have missing pieces. These are labelled “wounded birds”, and will list the missing pieces. Please read the listing carefully.

Patterns are shipped in plastic bags, with a backing board. This will protect them from the elements (and the post office).

In our continued effort to remain environmentally friendly, your Paypal or credit card receipt will serve as your receipt.

We love to ship to our international customers, but want you to know a few things. International shipping prices have gone up tremendously over the past couple of years. Please check the shipping carefully before purchasing, and if you have questions, please email us.
