I recently taught classes at the Custom Home Furnishings Academy in Charlotte, NC. They were titled, "Outdoor Living" and "Marine Applications". They lasted 3 days each and were very fast paced and fun. I had 7 students that came from all over the country......New York, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Lots and lots of sunbrella upholstery fabric, sunbrella marine fabric and naugahyde vinyl were used. The student fabricated a waterfall cushion, an outdoor umbrella, a sunshade, a vinyl boat seat, a sunbrella cockpit cushion, outdoor grommet drapery panel and an entire boat cover. The classes are being taught again; the second week in April, second week in July and the second week in September. Check out the CHFA website and sign up for a class. You will be so glad you did.
