131  UNITED STATES / Missouri / Sewing Class in St. Louis on: May 17, 2005 07:45:46 AM
I'm looking for a beginner's class in sewing in StL...not one geared towards kids, though...

Any recommendations?

132  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Recovering Chairs with Vinyl - NEED HELP!! on: April 09, 2005 07:44:00 PM
I have some vintage kitchen chairs (from a chrome & formica kitchen set) that I am trying to recover with new vinyl.

The seats where easy...they were just a wrap & staple kind of thing.

I'm having problems with the chair backs, though. They are padded and covered on both sides. I took vinyl and pinned it as tightly as possible around the top of the chair and the 2 sides, leaving the bottom side unsewn (I'll staple it later). My problem is that the chair back is curved outward and so it takes more fabric to cover the back of the chair than the front.  When I sew the vinyl, it bunches up and creates wrinkles along the top seam.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make this not happen? This is one of my first sewing projects and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.  Huh

I would really appreciate any input anyone has!

133  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Cleaning the fireplace on: February 11, 2005 12:39:46 PM
Can anyone advise the best way to clean the bricks on the inside of a fireplace?
We want to repaint it but will need to clean it first.

Thanks much!
