We are excited to offer this course with a qualified upholster as well as Sonja who has been offering Upholstery basics for the last year.  In this class we take it up a notch a professional upholsterer will be there to help you reupholster your kitchen chair and also a side chair, brining new life into your furniture. If you would bring your chair to be reupholstered it would cost you a considerable amount, so this course is great value for your money.

In this class you will be taught how to:

  • Cover curves and corners  with fabric using a pneumatic staple gun
  • Tear back the fabric of your existing chair, restructure the base
  • Choose the right fabric for your project
  • How to use cardboard tack strip and a metal tac strip to finish your chair
  • How to properly recover your kitchen chairs
Students will need a domestic sewing machine, iron, and basic sewing kit at home to practice and complete their projects
EcoEquitable will supply the sewing machine during class as well as fabric when possible.

Homework will consist of about 3 hours per class
