This book is ideal for anyone new to upholstery or seasoned upholsterers, clear and concise directions and hands on pictures to remind all of us what we may have just learned or learned in the past how to do upholstery. Excellent!

Recently purchased this book after someone in my upholstery class brought it in. What a fantastic book! With the use of very good photographs, it makes even (well, what I think of as) difficult techniques - such as deep buttoning - seem clear and do-able. The projects and fabrics are beautiful. Highly recommend this book for beginners and intermediates alike.

What a useful book. I thought I knew how to upholster a chair seat but with the detailed steps in this book it is so much easier to get really good results.

I am a complete novice (no experience of upholstery whatsoever) but this book clearly explained which tools I would need and which materials. I ordered some basic tools and have almost completed my first project. Thoroughly recommend it for the complete beginner. The photographs and explanations are very clear.

The book is very helpful in confirming all that I have been learning through classes. But, I think that even without the classes, the photos and instructions are excellent and would be very helpful for someone starting a project on their own. The photography is very clear, and certainly essential if one cannot attend a live demonstration.

No book can claim to be the ultimate upholstery bible, and this one certainly is not. This said it is an excellent book to have in your upholstery library, it contains some good graphics and pictures, the section about "stuffing" is the weakest chapter of this book, this essential stage would require a lot more space. At the end of the book, one of the best section I have seen so far on cutting plans and how to make the most of your fabric. That chapter on its own is a good reason to buy this book.
