We at Ragtime have suddenly become VERY busy! There are classes and retreats and so many organizational duties along with normal business responsibilities. The chair, with or without wings, is going to take too much time and space to do in a step-by-step-video-blog manner as we had originally planned. So . . . we’ve decided to make a change in how we’re going to make it happen.
First, we’d like to know who is interested in owning the chair. We realized that although you might have been interested in the blog, you might not have space or interest in having the chair. If, after you’ve read through all of this, you would like to own the chair, please email us or let us know in some way that you want to have your name entered. If there are several of you, we’ll hold a drawing to determine the winner.
If you’re chosen to own the chair, all of the foundation parts (a $250 value) will be supplied by Ragtime. These are things like webbing, twine, foam for cushions and upholstery batting. You will also receive $50.00 toward the fabric of your choice. To this point, this is exactly as was originally planned.
The difference, now, is that instead of watching me do all of the upholstery, YOU will work with me to complete the chair. In other words, you will learn a lot of the tricks and secrets of upholstery and you’ll have hands-on experience with the tools of the trade. The work on the chair will be done at Ragtime, no cost to you, during our regularly scheduled Home Decor Circle time which is held on the 4th Saturday of every month from 9:30-12:30.
Now . . . if you’re interested in learning a bit about upholstery, or in having a chance to work on a chair that you will own, or if you just love the chair and want to have a hand in its completion, please contact Ragtime Fabrics through our blog, email, by phone, or in person. Please let us know by April 15.
Thanks for your interest and your support.
