If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how valuable is a video?
Here at ArtsandCraftsCollector.com we have been busy making brief, informative videos to educate and instruct viewers in a variety of aspects of Arts & Crafts collecting.
We hope to offer additional videos in the near future, so if you have an idea for one, please send us an email.
And – should you get the urge to make a short video featuring some aspect of your collection, let us know about it, too. We might just be able to add it to our selection.

Original leather often doesn’t last as long as an original finish, so in this session we take you through the steps in replacing a leather seat on our Stickley chair.
