Was April 25 2013 4pm to 6pm.

In this workshop with Val Johnson, learn how to determine whether a piece is worth saving, how to remove old upholstery and prep pieces for reupholstering, and basic reupholstering techniques.

Bring an old chair, cushion or other covered piece with you to the workshop and get expert advice on whether it’s worth saving and how to go about giving it new life! Even if you don’t have something to bring in, the skills you’ll learn in this workshop will give you confidence when it comes to fixing a beloved piece or bargain-hunting for fixer-uppers!

This applies to Pillows and Chairs and couches.
