Day 5 of Upholstery Class
Today we finished up our chairs, discussed skirts, arm covers, and ordering supplies.
To finish our chairs we learned how to hand sew with a curved needle.
Hand sewing with a curved needle has always kind of scared me, so I never spent much time trying it. With Kathy’s instruction, it was not as scary or as hard as I thought it would be.
Here is my first attempt at hand sewing. I closed the outside arm to the front of the key, and along the bottom of the leg.
All 3 of the chairs! Alice didn’t quiet have her’s done when we took the pictures, but she was well on her way to getting it finished.
As promised here is some of the projects created by Window Treatments 201 taught by Cathy Tucker. Shirley and Tessa did some great work!
Banding and edge treatment sample.
They made swags and cascades.
They also made Box pleat valances and trapezoid Shades.

Tessa and Shirley completed the class.
Some of my view on the way home.
It rained part of the way, but not real bad. I now know to avoid Nashville during rush hour. And I would like to think Adele, Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson, George Straight, Dixie Chicks, and Jimmy Buffett for helping get to Roswell and back home, without them I don’t know how I would have made it. 🙂
