Do you need special skills to take this class? This is a beginning level upholstery class, but you should have an aptitude for working with fabric and materials.
What time do we meet? The course content is posted online in our virtual classroom each class session, two or three times weekly over six weeks.
How much time will it take, what happens if I get behind? Chair Up! is meant to be flexible; total time and pace varies a bit among students. We set goals for each week, and students are encouraged to keep up. The course content is always available to you to review as needed. If you need questions answered, or peer support, you can just hop on over to the private Chair Up! Facebook Group and post your questions or comments. This is a no stress class.
What kind of computer do I need? You’ll need a high speed internet connection and the most updated version of your browser.
Can I go back to previous lessons? Absolutely!
Do you have to know how to sew? NO!
What if I don’t have all of those tools? In some pre-course lessons, I’ll show you how to make do with more common tools you may have around your house. Though you will need an electric stapler (preferably upholstery specific) and a few upholstery specific tools and materials.
How do I know if this class is for me? If you’ve wanted to learn upholstery, can’t find a class or a teacher, have tried following video tutorials, but want the expertise and instruction of a professional upholsterer with over 25 years of experience, then Upholstery Knockouts has come to your rescue. I can’t physically travel around the world teaching classes, but I can virtually come right into your home and give you the instruction, support and encouragement you need to build your skills.
When will I know if I got into the class? Once you register, you’ll get a PayPal confirmation. You’ll receive an email from me within a few days after you register. Then, you’re IN and you’ll receive the key to the Upholstery Knockouts classroom for Chair Up!
Is there any reason this class would be too difficult for me? Upholstery takes strength and stamina. It entails lots of smoothing, pulling and stapling, as well as moving your furniture around. Make sure you’re strong enough to take full advantage of the teaching you’ll receive.
