Join Us & Learn To Upholster

I'm so happy to announce that I'm collaborating with our friends at Paint It Like New to host a fun event – And you’re invited!
Join us on April 19th, 2012 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm {or 9:30pm if we get a little chatty} at Paint It Like New , 1254 Plains Road East, Unit 1A, in Burlington.  At the event, Janet Hamilton, President of Paint It Like New will be giving a crash course on how to maximize impact with colour choices and furniture selection, as well as talking colour trends for 2012.

Staci Edwards, Designer and President of Switch Studio {that's moi}, will be discussing how to choose fabric for upholstering projects, trends in upholstery for 2012, and what to look for when deciding to reupholster a piece. 
Staci will also be giving a demonstration on how to reupholster drop in seats, much like the cute chairs above!  All of the techniques she’ll be showing can be used and applied to many different chairs, benches, and ottomans, so you’ll be able to apply them to your own projects at home.  You’ll be able to see first hand what a little paint and fabric can do for an inexpensive chair – See the before and after of these chairs live at the event!

And no event would be complete without cookies!  A sweet cookie platter will be provided by Elm Hill Cookies  for all to enjoy.  Non-alcoholic beverages will also be served.

The night sounds so great, right?  Well wait, because we’re not done yet!  Each guest will receive an information package from Paint It Like New and Switch Studio sharing insider tips from the pros.  And Paint It Like New and Switch Studio will each be giving a special gift valued at $25.00 each to all attendees {yep, we’re givers}! 

Last, but not least, there will be a grand prize draw at the end of the evening for the following:

·      A reusable bag {because being green is great} containing the following…
·      A $100 gift certificate to Paint It Like New
·      A $100 gift certificate to Switch Studio
·      A new Benjamin Moore fan deck
·      A $25.00 gift certificate from Elm Hill Cookies

That’s over $250.00 worth of prizes for one lucky winner - It will be a small group, so odds of winning are very good!

Interested in attending?  Sign up quickly, as space is limited!  Tickets are $50.00 and can be purchased at Paint It Like New.  Call 905.631.7336, or email paintitlikenew@bellnet.ca for tickets or inquiries. 
Thanks, and looking forward to seeing you there!
