We went to Hughes's Cotton Country and I found fabric on sale ($3.00/yd) and the guy told me, yes, 7 yards would be plenty, plus he was leaving the tad on there left over. When I called the upholsterer, she said, oh, for that size chair, probably 8-10 yards! Great! Well, I only spent $21 for the material, so maybe I can trade it in or take it to the consignment shop in Wynne, or the fabric store there, or, or something! I really liked it, too. Now why would he tell me that? But with 50 years of experience JoAnn should know. I won't count it lost yet... I'll let her see the picture of it first and tell me what she thinks.
