WEBB : How to make cushions
This is the first of a series of talks, to be given once a month, in which listeners will be told of some handicrafts that can be carried on, without needing any very elaborate equipment or technical skill, at home. This morning Mrs. Webb will describe how to make cushions-a hobby that many women will find amusing, and that may well be made quite profitable.
