Is Seventies Sofa Set Worth Reupholstering?

Good Questions

Pin it button big
Q: I have a sofa/chair/ottoman set, purchased in the 70s.  It is nothing special or sentimental.
1.  Is it worth reupholstering?
2.  Should I consider trying to do it myself (no experience)?
3.  Can I get some kind of estimate for a professional job?  A "WAG" would be just fine to give me an idea. Thanks.
