Q&A with Cherie Killilea

Cathie W asked:
Beautiful! I am considering this class since the many slipcover books have not inspired me to make any slipcovers! I have wanted to cover my chair and sofa for years ! It seems hard.
Cherie Killilea answered:
Cathie, I appreciate you giving voice to your hesitations. I think we all have been there. Following written instructions can be a little tiring. I think all of the students who are taking this course would tell you I keep it light and fun. It is much easier than you think. It's almost like having me there holding your hand. You can do it!
Adamsewfun asked:
Cherie, would I be able to adjust lessons from this class to slipcover a smaller couch? I was looking for a Craftsy class that address this but didn't find one. I figured a smaller sofa is just an oversized chair and thought I would ask. Thanks
Cherie Killilea answered:
Yes, for sure this can all translate to a couch. And I am here to help you. If your couch is a wingback or has a camel hump back, then do the wingback class. If the back is straight like this chair, then do this class.
b_bay3261205 asked:
I want to make a slipcover for a swivel rocker. I wonder if this project would work for me??
Cherie Killilea answered:
If the chair is a similar shape to the armchair I do in this class, then this will be a great class for you. If it is more of a wingback shape, get the wingback class. I hope that helps! If you look through the projects posted by students here, I think you will find a swivel rocker that turned out great.
