upholstery workshops. This is a
jump from 78 upholstered chairs
and 270 slipcovers of the pre

workshop. At this time the wo
men bring their old furniture to
repair, and then discuss how to
select material for the pieces.
A workshop is limited to 16
women working on eight chairs,
Usually two women from each
extension unit attend, bringing
with them one piece of furniture
to learn the principles which
they take back to their commun
ities. There they will act as pro
gram leaders to pass on their
