As of May 2020 I had completed 5 terms of community college evening classes and have come to know that learning upholstery fully is no mean feat! When you only get 2 hours per week with your instructor, and you have to share him with others in the class, it does not get you very far very fast.
I love every minute of it though. It makes me satisfied and very happy sitting on a chair I have just reupholstered. I also have a slight obsession with material, I have drawers full of it. I’m fascinated by how different materials will give a different feel to a piece of furniture.
Every piece of furniture is slightly different to reupholster depending on the period, the furniture maker, the country it was produced in, which material you choose, etc. Does it have padding or springs. Material or leather? Hand stitch or back tacking? The options are endless and so exciting.
As soon as classes resume I will be beavering away again on my upholstery. In the meantime, if you have a more simple item you would like upholstered please contact me.
