Learn how to Reupholster

This event isn’t being run by the Repairathon, but we thought you would want to hear about it. I’ve copied the information from their website. I also posted this on Waste Nothing, another website I run.

Old Made New: Reupholstery and You!

April 25, 2013, 4pm-6pm

CSI Annex, 720 Bathurst Street, in the ING Presentation Space

Knowing how to repair old furniture is a great way to keep things out of the landfill. In this Eco-Month workshop with Val Johnson, learn how to determine whether a piece is worth saving, how to remove old upholstery and prep pieces for reupholstering, and basic reupholstering techniques.

Bring an old chair, cushion or other covered piece with you to the workshop and get expert advice on whether it’s worth saving and how to go about giving it new life! Even if you don’t have something to bring in, the skills you’ll learn in this workshop will give you confidence when it comes to fixing a beloved piece or bargain-hunting for fixer-uppers!
