Do you want to learn upholstery?
Bring new life to… your old favorite chair that is worn & tattered… a unique piece you picked up at a yard sale that really needs a make-over… a thrift store find that’s almost perfect, but not quite.
If you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to restore or reinvent your treasure, here’s a local event just for you: an upholstery demonstration that will open doors to the possibilities for revitalizing your furniture.
Come to our upholstery demonstration hosted at Truex Furniture, 124 South Main Street in downtown Livingston during the Livingston Art Walk September 23, 2011 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
Local ‘Upholstery Stylist’ Carla Pyle, along with two of her students, will re-upholster a simple side chair in two hours! And they will illustrate the beginning steps in an office chair make-over. Carla will explain basic upholstery tools and their uses as well as different types of materials and fun new fabrics available for an amazing transformation.
Interested in a taking a class? During the demonstration, aspiring ‘students of design’ will have the opportunity to sign up for a beginner upholstery class offered by Carla at her Livingston studio in October. Plan to take your own finished project home after the class. Your chair will need to be pre-approved ahead of time for level of difficulty. Class size is limited, but additional classes will be scheduled to meet demand. Bring any questions you may have about the upholstery class to the Art Walk demonstration or email Carla (carla null@null livinghomefurniture NULL.com?subject=Upholstery%20Class) for more information.
