Instructor:  Emily Pettit

*Must meet a minimum number of students by September 26th to hold this class. 


Slipcovers bring warmth and style to any room and are a practical solution for busy families. In this class, students will participate in a thorough introduction of slipcover design and fabrication, and master the basic fitting and sewing techniques of pattern placement, pin-fitting, and stitching. 


Students will create form-fitting slipcovers with or without welt, and their choice of skirt style, and leave with the confidence and skills to offer them to clients.


Students can bring their own armless Parsons style chair, or one will be provided.  They will go home with a completed slipcover and several small samples of different slipcover closures and skirt style options. 


Topics include:


  • fabric suitability
  • yardage calculation
  • fabric cuts and placement
  • reverse-pin technique
  • mastering corners, edges and tuck-in areas
  • armless chair slipcover styles
  • welt cord, or no-welt cord options
  • supply resources
