If your church made kneelers a few decades ago, they may now be uncomfortably squashy.   Repairing them is a tiresome job that may take four to five hours each, but you will be giving them a further 40 to 50 years of life.
Though the Tent stitches or Cross stitches will still be in perfect condition, the stuffing, the backing and the strap to hang it up by may be in a state of collapse.
