Learn to make a removable slipcover: Cut fabric precisely, stitch welting and attach borders and skirting. If time permits, we will add cushions. Choose a small piece of furniture.

Bring your piece to the first and last class only. We regret that, due to our limited space, you must take it home in between classes.

Note: This class takes place in our basement classroom in order to use our upholstery-grade sewing machines.

Basic experience with sewing machines is helpful but not required.


Please bring a basic sewing kit to class, including:

  • heavy-duty sewing scissors for upholstery-grade fabric
  • straight pins
  • pincushion
  • measuring tape
  • seam ripper
  • fabric that you would like to use
  • Your piece of furniture. Please note: You will be transporting your furniture to and from class each week, so we recommend it be on the smaller side.

All other materials will be supplied.
