Advanced Open Weekend

Want to tackle a more complicated project, but can’t make it to the cities every week? Mark your calendar for a 3 day weekend with Cynthia Bleskachek.

This class will run Friday-Sunday from 10-5 so roll up your sleeves and eat your Wheaties! You’re going to leave sweaty and proud!

If you’re traveling from out of town, this class is a perfect option for exploring foundation work (springs, burlap, padding, etc.), complex sewn styles (attached cushions, channeling, skirts) or fully upholstered chairs. You should have prior upholstery experience, on your own or through the shop before registering for this class. We’ll be happy to recommend prep work you can do in advance to make the most of your long weekend!

(Looking for a hotel in the area? The Hampton Inn and Suites is located right off the Greenline a few miles from The Funky Little Chair – you can even drop by The Textile Center while you’re in town! There are also many Air BnBs in the area – if you stay at one, we’d love to hear about your experience!)
