Upholstery Fair 2010

It wasn't just upholsterers...Sheryl McAfee of "A Stitch in Time Design" in Indianapolis explores ways to expand her custom window treatment business by offering light upholstery. In this class we built and upholstered a simple slipseat - the kind you would find in a dining chair or side chair. Those corners are trickier than they look :) We then attached them to a hand built footstool frame to take home and use.

SuzyQ,
This is what someone on an upholstery forum wrote:
"Great Oaks is the multi-county tech school system here. http://www.greatoaks.com/ There are 5 campuses scattered within an hour of Cincinnati. Their main focus is as an alternative high school for skilled and semi-skilled trades. But they do have a career "re-development" in evening classes."
Hope this helps!
