updating a classic
by Patricia Belyea
SEATTLE WA I received this low-to-the-ground chair for my 6oth birthday in July. I was told that it’s a hand-stitching chair — a special chair for a woman who’s working on a needlecraft project.
(The original seat cover was not harmed in the refresh of this chair. It’s underneath the new quilted seat.)
The brown, checked fabric is from a cotton shirt of my dad’s. The rest are yukata cottons.
I’ve already spent a few hours in my old/new chair. The 9′ x 7′ quilt I’m hand-stitching flows all around me on the floor. I assume that’s how this chair is supposed to work.
Has anyone else heard of a hand-stitching chair?
