Here are a few of the projects we are working on at the upholstery classes:
Jayne is continuing with her beautiful bergere sofa - fully sprung, hair and fibre sewn in and now the hessian is being applied over the stuffing ready for the stitched roll-edge. Great work.
Andrea has almost finished her Danish mid-century rocker. The buttons are on, and we only have to hand stitch the back to complete the piece.
Hilary is at the final stages of her modern deep buttoned headboard - an ambitious project but it has worked well overall.
Sue's parker knoll chair looks incredible after it shake-over. One arm on and one yet to finish, but not much more to do now! The choice of fabric is a great one for this vintage piece - harlequin from Shufflebottoms in Macclesfield. Look out on ebay as Sue plans to sell this one.
Clarissa's parker knoll is coming along very nicely - just pinned the back and hand sewing in place. Then time to make the cushion.
Great work ladies ...
