Introduction to Upholstery (virtual classroom)

Transform a stuffed chair with fresh fabric and piping into a beautiful new addition to your home! We'll work through the steps of reupholstering by removing the old fabric, adding new foam (if necessary), sewing the piping and seat cushion, and applying the new fabric. We'll be using a staple gun, rather than old school upholstery tacks. You will need a sewing machine, scissors, pliers, staple gun, staples, chair, enough fabric to cover the chair, and any necessary new foam or batting. The first session will cover removal, pattern making, addition of foam, and making your own piping. The second session will cover sewing the bottom cushion (and any other sewn details) and re-upholstery of the remaining surfaces. Prerequisite: basic sewing skills. Please note, a chair with button tufting is much more advanced and will require an additional long needle tool. If this is your first project of this kind, you may want to avoid a chair with such details.
