No job is too small and all jobs are important.

"Mary Jose, textile conservator at the “Fabric of Life”, returned the restored verandah chair to Urrbrae House. Mary has done a magnificent job which was funded by a donation from the Urrbrae House snooker group led by Richard Wells. The Friends of Urrbrae House committee has agreed to fund the conservation of the second verandah chair which is now being undertaken by Mary Jose. Mary has done some excellent conservation work for the house over the years, which has included tub chairs in the library and curtains in the drawing room."
