With 15 easy to follow, fabulously illustrated step-by-step projects, this is just what the beginning upholsterer needs. The first eight items--including a drop-in-bottom chair, overstuffed seat, and box cushion--teach the fundamental techniques required to tackle any upholstery task that might arise. After that, it's time to get more creative, with a beautiful Art Deco armchair, chaise longue, leather chesterfield, and more. Each project includes a list of tools and materials, a quick overview of the key skills, and tip boxes to make the work go more smoothly.
Save your old sofa or stuffed chair by reupholstering it. This book outlines the process clearly and concisely, with wonderfully detailed illustrations and photos for every step of the way. Sowle and Dye, craftspeople from England with their own upholstery web site (, handle the topic expertly, covering basic techniques, tools, and materials. The layout is crisp and cohesive, which results in an attractive book. Although this is essentially a British publication, with lists of overseas suppliers, comparable materials and tools are available in the United States. Good for beginners; recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

So Simple Upholstery Total Hits - 307  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Revive tired, worn, and threadbare furniture with these easy-to-follow lessons in upholstery. So Simple Upholstery offers clear, detailed advice and specially commissioned step-by-step photography that makes this subject accessible for even the newcomer. The book includes an introduction outlining the tools that readers need and explains how to successfully remove old material. From there, projects begin, ranging from a simple music stool to an elegant chaise lounge. Topics cover handling the practicalities of repairing innards, calculating new yardage, cutting pieces to fit properly, and achieving smooth coverage. The emphasis in this book is on practical household furniture - chairs, stools, sofas - as these pieces are used on a day-to-day basis. So Simple Upholstery encourages the reader to use the best materials and the most reliable techniques, so that furniture can enjoy a full and serviceable life!
These two books will give an amateur do-it-yourselfer the confidence to tackle window decorating and upholstery projects. Abbott and Burren, who also coauthored So Simple Slipcovering, own the Cambridge, England-based interior design firm Angel and Blume. Here they've compiled 30 projects for curtains, shades, and accessories, some of which require no sewing, such as swags, as well as more complex projects like lined pinch-pleat draperies. Their step-by-step instructions are clearly written and effectively illustrated with color photographs. Techniques common to the projects are included on the last pages in the same lucid manner. Readers would have benefited, however, from an overview of the materials needed, as is provided in So Simple Upholstery, whose eight projects are more complex than those suggested by Abbott and Burren for window treatments but are similarly described in clearly photographed, step-by-step instructions. Beginning with the simplest project of recovering a chair seat, the projects progress to reupholstering a button-back chair and, eventually, a sofa. Both books are recommended for public libraries.

Slipcovers and pillows are simple and stylish methods of transforming the look of your furniture without spending a fortune. Known for their practicality and versatility, slipcovers and pillows can also add color and design elements to any home decor. Easy Slipcovers & Pillows shows how to choose and create just the right covers and pillows for your chairs, stools, and sofas. With comprehensive photographic step-by-step instructions, each of the 25 original projects provides a professional-style guide to choosing shapes, colors, and fabrics, while an extensive techniques section details all the stitching skills you will need.

As the other reviewer has said this book has very good illustrations and in many steps. It answered many of the questions I had on mitered corners and other things and so I will be able to use the other book I bought sewing edges and corners. One of the best books I've seen on this topic and sewing. I will certainly buy other books by creative publishing hoping that they will be good as this one. So this book is recommended for beginners with some experience.
