Having received this book as a b'day pressie, I had to ask my sister "Where are the tools to go with it? I want to start NOW!!" I am so inspired by this beautiful book - the things you can do to an old, icky piece of furniture are just amazing. Dorothy Gates has included projects from beginner level (that's me!)up, explains how to do the basic stuff, gives detailed material lists of what you will need for each project, discusses colour schemes, textures and trimmings, gives tips for setting up your work space, AND provides a substantial list of suppliers at the back of book...so you can get started straight away! There are hundreds of colour drawings and photographs illustrating projects ranging from dining chairs and armchairs to day beds, footstools, blanket boxes and lounge suites. There's a glossary at the back in case you forget what a tack roll is, and a working order checklist at the front (so once you know what you are doing, you can simply refer to that to make sure you don't miss a step, instead of reading a whole chapter again!) Truly, an excellent book! Thank you Dorothy Gates - you have inspired me to begin a new hobby!

I belonged to an upholstery class and we all placed a mass order because we were so impressed with the book. It is full of colour photographs of projects. Information on upholstery materials/tools, how to complete different projects - maybe not in as much detail as a beginner would like, or need - and lots of inspiration with regard to using materials and trimmings.

I really like this book and have used it as a guide for reupholstering a victorian nursing chair. It`s lovely to read through with very clear instructions. You can also get lots of help and advice on the net to back it up.The Essential Guide to Upholstery

The book was exactly as described. It was delivered pretty much on the last day I could expect it.

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my daughter and was rather concerned that it might not arrive in time, as it was being shipped from USA. I was also concerned about the quality as I have never bought pre-owned books before. The book arrived in time and I was very pleased with the quality. This is a hard back book and the only thing that showed it was not brand new was the paper cover which had a very small tear in it and wasn't quite as firm around the edges - the book has obviously either had little use or had been very well looked after. In fact it wasn't until I checked the invoice I remembered it was a pre-owened item. Much better than expected.
