In 1967 my parents purchased this rocking chair for the bargain price of 25 cents at an estate sale in Evansville, Illinois where they were living. Aside from the mattress they slept on, this was the first piece of furniture in their house. For the next 25 years it was a fixture in the various homes they lived in. Then my dad went on sabbatical to Denver and it ended up in a storage unit doomed to be a victim of downsizing and sold at their next garage sale.
He measured and cut and sewed and stitched and folded and stretched and secured and a couple hours later it looked like this:

I have to admit I thought it was so funny scrolling down and seeing Jason in front of the sewing machine – not sure why but it made me giggle. But WOW – seriously that chair looks great – professionally done! I bet your mom now is very proud of you guys. As well as all of us!
Jason, your talents are never ending! You two are a perfect match…Amy has the vision and Jason figures out how to complete it! I love the look on our old rocker! It truly ROCKS!! I’m so thankful we held on to it, so that it could spring to new life! I’m looking forward to rocking Hadley and reading to Carson in it when we come over today!
what a great team effort! How beautiful and inspiring!
