When Needlepoint Isn't Period

Not every period of history upholstered chairs with needlepoint, even though we tend to think of it as an older style.  I thought you'd like to read about the transformation of a needlepoint chair into a leather-covered one to make it more authentic for the museum where it lives.  And yes!  They saved the needlepoint!
