Hi all,
My dad passed on his 1937 portable HMV Gramophone to me. It's working well however needs to be recovered. Would anyone know where I would be able to take this to have it properly re-covered?

I found an identical gramophone at

Thanks everyone,

Two trades that come to mind are upholsterers and motor trimmers.
