     Furniture Re-covering conducted by Mrs. W. K. Jealous. This group will of necessity meet primarily for consultation and discussion, but small pieces of furniture may be brought to the workshop and a place will be provided for their safe-keeping. Mrs Jealous, who studied at the Boston Museum School of Art, has many practical suggestions on furniture re-covering and the decorative treatment of fabrics. Her practical experience and knowledge have caused her to be retained as consultant on many interior decoration projects.7
