Good Questions

Q: Hi, I just reupholstered my dining chairs in a chic black and white striped oilcloth and I'm in love with them. This morning while sitting in one of the chairs I realized that the cat had left clawmarks in two of the chairs and I'm heartbroken. I've looked online to find tips on how to repair oilcloth, but all I can find are leather and vinyl repair kits. The marks are very small, basically just holes, so I need help finding a subtle but sturdy fix specific to oilcloth material. Please help!!!
