Looking for advice from all you wise women that know fabrics inside and out! My kitchen chairs need to be recovered again. They used to be white, but then got so dirty from little fingers that they wouldn't sun out white again. I reupholstered them some brown fabric - looks like suede and was supposed to be "dry clean only", but the lady at the fabric store told me water would be ok. WRONG!
Anyway, I would like something that can be wiped clean. You know, something that we won't stick to in the Summer (I remember the vinyl chairs of my childhood and that's *not* the sweaty mess I'm looking for). Would oil cloth work for this task or is there something else to suggest? Is there a decent online fabric shop with a lot of pattern choices after I know which type of fabric I want?
