General Discussion / foam or rubberized hair???
« on: September 22, 2017, 08:48:05 AM »

I'm reupholstering an old armchair but am confused as to what material to use for the inside back (23"l, 24"w) and inside arms (20"l, 19'w). I have a sheet of rubberized hair which should cover all or should I go with  foam? :

1) is it safe to assume that if I use the rubberized hair the mesh side goes against the frame? OK to affix sheet with staples?

2) as for foam research suggests medium density for inside back and arms but how thick?

Thank you!

p.s. I planned to reuse original horsehair which I diligently steamed but could not eliminate bugs...

Thank you sofadoc and gene for your sage advice.  I'm afflicted with analysis paralysis - trying to decide on what brand (as well as model) to focus on for upholstering&slipcovering. I know juki is quality but it seems there are dozens of their models to choose from. Any other brands I should focus on?

Thank you again in advance for any suggestions.

Looking for opinions on the Pfaff Ambition 1.0 sewing machine for making wingback chair slipcovers as well as for reupholstering.

Thank you!

General Discussion / reusing horsehair stuffing
« on: September 16, 2016, 12:11:41 PM »

I'm reupholstering mid century club chair and want to reuse horsehair stuffing. Several websites suggested putting hair in pillow case and machine or hand washing. Another option is to steam the hair which I favor in order to maintain the current shape of the hair which would make it easier to reapply to chair.

Any comments or suggestions?

Thank you.
