I’m back in the flow, continuing my upholstery journey, enjoying my passion!  So last week I began to work on my 19th century Bergere sofa, bought from my local auction last autumn. I have purchased the fabric, a lovely soft cotton weave from Linwood fabrics which compliments the beautiful neutral shades of my husband’s fireside chair. Before I can enjoy fitting the fabric and making the cushions I had to cover the base with hessian cloth and attach webbing to give strenght to the seat. All of this took me a good four hours with the odd coffee stop and chat!
