About this course

This basic video is aimed to beginners and teaches 'two common and basic seams' at a time (blind stitch and flat felled stitches) used to do upholstery. It also teaches how to pattern a seat.

The other seams we would study are the use of piping or welting , french seams and bindings.

This basic training will make you understand in a near future how to do real seats. The practice on small seats would make us save material and have a better understanding of the trade.

Good Luck!
