      A new more flexible Beginners Class schedule will now begin .  Class orientation will be held on the last Thursday of each month starting May 30th.  Orientation will be comprised of a one hour introduction to upholstery showing samples of different projects and explanation of the techniques and materials used to create them.  You will then be instructed on the operation of the industrial walking foot sewing machine and allowed to spend some time practicing.
       Students will then then create the four Beginners class projects on their own schedules during any class times posted on the calendar.  You will not be required to sign up or commit to any specific days, simple check the calendar and show up when convenient.  Your class will run until you finish your four projects.
        Class times right now are Saturday mornings 9:00 to 1:00 and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 9:00
        Tuition is $500 and includes all materials and supplies.  $250 is required to sign up for the orientation, with the remaining $250 due at the first class project date.
      Upon completion of the Beginner's class students can then join Intermediate class and do their own projects with  my guidance and assistance.  Class time is sold by the project.  Simply send a picture to and I will get back to you with the hours required @ $20 per hour. 
 Advance class is basically class time  to do your own projects with limited assistance. Class time is $15 per hour.
Come in any class times posted on the calendar.  You do not have to notify me in advance, simple show up.
