Upholstery Made Easy
Always wanted to upholster your own furniture? Well, here's your opportunity to learn the basic how to’s. Using your own furniture, get hands-on experience in the beginner stages of upholstery. You’ll begin by learning about appropriate fabrics and materials. Next, you'll strip your furniture and then step-by-step rebuild and upholster it. Some sewing is involved. (Please note: Bring your furniture item to the first class. Only small pieces of furniture please, such a foot stool or a small occasional chair (not a separate cushion), due to time constraints and limited storage facilities.)
Materials: A measuring tape (tailor’s tape); yard stick; scissors; hand held stapler (electric recommended) and staples; staple remover; pliers (or side cutters); chalk; glue gun (optional); sewing machine (optional); a hammer; and safety glasses. Many items can be purchased inexpensively at stores like the Dollar store.
