The dates for this class are: 3/18, 4/8, 4/15, 4/22, 4/29. Class will meet at the Omro Area Community Center located at 150 West Larrabee Street in Omro. Coming from Oshkosh take Hwy 21 into Omro. Turn left on Hwy 116 (Jefferson Ave.). Go down three blocks and the Center is on your left. Please come in and find the classroom before you bring in your furniture. You will be shown where to you can drive around to the back of the building to unload your furniture and then go park your car. Supply list, selection, and preparation of chair: If you are new to this class, for your first project, reupholster a simple chair, such as an occasional chair. DO NOT remove the existing material from your chair before class begins. The instructor will show you how to do this and will give advice as to the yardage required for the cover. Please note that rubber backed materials and cloth-back vinyl fabrics are not allowed (they gum up the machines). If exposed wood needs refinishing, do it before class begins. Remove existing fabric only where it covers these areas. After refinishing, wrap exposed wood (legs, arms, etc.), so they will not get scratched when reupholstering your chair. Other than your piece of furniture, please bring a good pair of scissors and an old sheet to cover your furniture. You may bring your new fabric if you know what you want and how much you need. If you are unsure, don’t buy any fabric until the second week of class. Instructor will discuss fabric suggestions and ideas with you. All projects should be limited to a chair size project. Larger type pieces of furniture such as recliners, love seats and couches are not permitted. Insurance carriers for Fox Valley Technical College do not provide insurance for student projects. We suggest and encourage that everyone contact their homeowner’s insurance carrier/agent on how to properly insure your projects. A non-registered person (adult or child) may not attend or be in class. Please note: This is a 15 h
