Upholstery on YouTube

with a houseful of family (I'm chaperoning naps at the moment and thus muted), I have not had a chance  to watch any of these but thought they might be of interest or discussion worthy.

For an inexperienced DIY, that ottoman would be considered OK work, but I could never pass that kind of work through my shop and to a paying customer.

I'm always in favor of anything that exposes the public to the art of upholstery, it needs the publicity!

My exact words here to Jack
Not the acceptable finished product that I would want my customer to
pay me for.  Show is good for what is wrong and what should be right. What they should do is show that ottoman then show one that is professionally done.  But that will never happen  >:(

I see the lady's name is Marianne Conn. If I'm not mistaken it's Gregg Conn that sells Double-rock tools from "The Upholstery Studio." Husband and wife? (I thought Marianne was hitting on the upholsterer the way she asked him to bring it to her room...)

Well Stacey, all you need is a camera and an upload.

You'd be a shining star among the Gen-Y drivel and people looking for their 15 minutes, but lacking the talent.

What they should do is show that ottoman then show one that is professionally done.  But that will never happen  >:(

Is the fold-over for the seam really the way to do these?

I sure wouldn't do an exposed fold over. I like the looks of a nice sewn seam. If that was my ottoman or one I was doing for a customer the use of welt cord to me would look a lot cleaner and professional. But then most DIYS would not have the welt cord or the sewing machine to handle sewing the welt and have it look right.

Blech.  One of the few things to eat that I don't really like.

All time dis-favorite: Vegemite.  One bite and my tongue tasted bad for three days.

I'll volunteer to work for peanut butter cookies :D!
