Slipcover Summit in Hickory, North Carolina
What a cool travel idea! Head to Hickory, North Carolina June 26-29 and attend the 13th Annual Slipcover Summit. Not only do you get to explore the furniture-filled Hickory Furniture Mart, but you get to learn how to make slip covers for your own furniture. Part shopping extravaganza, part educational travel.
Devoted to the art and profession of making slip covers, this is the only event of its type in the country. You actually learn how to make slipcovers to protect or revive your old furniture or to simply make seasonal decorative changes.
Due to limited class sizes, you must register in advance if you want to attend. But the 100 factory outlets,stores,shops and galleries, representing over 1000 premier furniture manufacturers in Hickory Furniture Mart is unlimited (and priceless!).
