Introducing New Spruce Upholstery Classes!

Last month, we wrapped up our 2012 classes and gave our students a winter break to get ready for the holidays and rest up for next year’s projects.  In class, we are frequently asked, “Do you offer a class that lasts a bit longer, where I can tackle bigger projects?” So many of our students are furniture lovers like us with a garage full of projects patiently waiting for a makeover. After years of receiving this request, we have decided to revamp our upholstery classes and offer flexible upholstery instruction starting this winter!

Register for class, bring the piece of your choice (That’s right! No more project limitations), and spend as many days as you need learning advanced upholstery instruction from the Sprucettes. From spring tying to cushion sewing, you can learn it all!

Upholstery classes will be sold by the day, eight hours of time for instruction and the use of our tools and space. We allow four students per class, so you and your friends can come and enjoy it together! All materials needed (fabric, foam, Dacron, cotton, webbing, etc.) will be charged separately since each project varies in size and material requirements. Here are the nitty gritty details for ya!

Cost: $200 per class day (9am to 6pm with a 1-hour lunch break).

What is Included: Hands-on teaching from the Sprucettes, the use of all necessary upholstery tools, and a fun classroom facility.

What is NOT Included: Fabric, upholstery padding, and upholstery materials needed for your project.

Prerequisites:  No prior experience is needed! You must submit your project (via photo or in person) one week before class date, so we can gather the necessary materials.

Storage: All furniture must be removed from Spruce at the end of the day unless you have registered for consecutive class days.

Cancellation Policy: Full refund if canceled 10 days or earlier from class date. No refund or store credit if canceled within 10 days of class date.

Here are just a few examples of furniture you can tackle during class!
