Comments Off on A Basic Guide on Creating Custom Chair Cushions

Chair CushionsIf you want a decorative and artsy project, try upholstering your cushions with new fabrics. Anybody with basic sewing skills could perform this project. It’s easy, fun, and opens up a new set of decorative possibilities for your home.

First, take out the cushion filling and place it on the side. Make sure that you keep an eye on how the old cushion cover was sewed, so you can imitate the same style for an optimal it.

Next, you’re going to measure the seam allowances, which is basically the distance from the seam line to the edge of the fabric piece. Remember this measurement as it’s going to be important when you sew your new fabric pieces together again. Lay it out flat on the surface and measure the length and the width of the cover.

Take your new fabric and trace it over the old cushion cover that you were using. This will give you a rough idea of the exact size that you need. Cut your fabric pieces.

Seam each fabric piece together according to size. Be sure that there is enough space for you to sew a zipper on your cover (if needed). Check your newly sewn cover again to make sure that it is a near replica of your old cover’s size. Stuff the filling back inside, and you’ve just created some brand new cushions.

Place your brand new custom foam cushions back on your chair, and test it out to make sure that it’s just the exact type of comfort that you were looking for.

Comments Off on The History of the California Academy of Sciences

By Phin Upham

One of the sites most devastated by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake was the California Academy of Sciences. The site had been a rich a collection of scientific specimens, and a library of research materials and knowledge. It was reduced to a literal pile of rubble, with not more than a wheelbarrow full of recovered materials.

The Academy was founded in 1853, just three years after California officially became part of the US. It was founded with the goal of cataloguing every detail that the region of the United States had to offer. It also emphasized the collaboration of women in its endeavors.

A resolution was passed during its first year of operation that was quite forward thinking, with regards to the involvement of women in STEM. The academy wrote that it “highly approved” of hiring females for all levels of work during a time when women in science were relegated to menial tasks.

The museum wing of the Academy operation didn’t open until 1874, when it supposesdly drew up to 80,000 visitors every year. These curious visitors were treated to the museum’s intricate collection, which was lost to time during the earthquake. The good news for guests then (and now) is that the museum has housed several important exhibitions since then.

After the earthquake, the Academy site was reduced to rubble and had to be relocated. The new space was located in Golden Gate Park, and it has since contributed heavily to the sciences. Today, the public can witness some of those discoveries firsthand, including a fully-staffed research lab.
