When Mod Green Pod founder Nancy Mims sent along this email about a recent upholstery workshop held at Spruce Upholstery in Austin, I was tempted to get on a plane to Texas and take the next available class. I certainly do love a good upholstery job, especially when there’s a great selection of patterned fabric from which to choose.
The ladies at Spruce showed six students how to transform their old chairs with green upholstery techniques, including using non-toxic wood gloss and organic batting, and Nancy provided a selection of Mod Green Pod’s lovely organic cotton fabrics. The results are pretty amazing, and I love to see such varied chairs and prints together. Thanks for sharing, Nancy! — Kate
