New Upholstery Class at Brooklyn General

Friends of mine have had great things to say about the sewing classes at Brooklyn General, so I was interested to see that they are adding an Intro to Upholstery class. The five-session $325 course starts Monday, September 12th and runs from 6:30-9 pm. Here's a description:

"In this five-session class, you will learn the methods of professional upholstery for furniture. We will be covering upholstery methods for reupholstery, including basic sewing techniques, working with different densities of foams to create forms, stretching webbing, selecting, stretching, and tacking fabric, and covering finishing methods such as piping, tufting, tacking, and general tricks of the trade. By the first day we will complete an upholstered slip seat by utilizing webbing on frames, and by the end of the class everyone will have completed a small re-upholstery project. Preliminary woodworking, sewing, and general furniture construction skills are not necessary, but be prepared to work with sewing machines and staple guns."

Sign up here. They're also holding a Back to School sale right now -- 30% off all yarn and fabric Sunday September 4th through Sunday September 11th.
