quote for new upholstry covers

HI:

just looking for an idea of what it cost people to re cover their cushions, I have a 73 Boler,

I was Quoted $700 just for the sewing, if i bought the fabric off of him, and he said if i get the fabric myself the sewing price would go up a bit????

which makes no sense at all to me?


so what have other paid for someone to sew them all new cushions???

I already have new foam, so that is not an issue

thanks


Paul

It could be that he prefers to sew with fabrics he knows. My father-in-law sewed and was particular in that way.

Yeah true but does $700 seem reasonable for sewing the cushions for a 13' boler?

We had a mouse get into our pop up. Started the upholstery then discovered the toilet paper and paper towels to raise her family. The women replaced two of the foams and the fabric and then used what was left over of the damaged fabric to fix the other holes to help defray the cost because it would have been really expensive to replace all of it. It was I believe around $200 just for what little we did have replaced and that was a few years back. Have you tried other venders?

We had an entire set of new cushions for our Trillium made (foam + covers) for just over $700.

An upholsterer will get a healthy discount on fabric from their supplier. If you let them supply fabric they will mark up their cost but it is probably a better deal than if you buy your fabric retail. Sounds like I need to get back into upholstery!

FYI: Those look like they are out of a Casita not a Scamp. That is a Casita fabric print and the ad says it came out of the "king-size bed model", which Scamp doesn't make.

Paul, Alf S. once owned a Boler "Tours Light" and bought the Scamp cushion covers. Here's one posting (w/pics), from what I remember, he was quite pleased with the fit and cost. He did say, the banana cushion needed a bit of modification to fit: Boler Update Questions

Here's the post, in the same thread, where he says the cover fit well: Boler Update Questions and more pics!

We just purchased the Scamp cushions. The total cost was very reasonable, but when you figure your total cost don't forget shipping. For us shipping was well over $100 (standard UPS). We had several heavy things shipped from the factory at the same time so I can't tell you what shipping for just cushions would be.

The cushions themselves are very nicely made. We got the blue fabric and really like it. You can call Scamp and they will send you fabric samples if you would like.

Good Luck!

did you supply the fabric or did the upholsterer? usually 100% markup of fabric sothat may be in the quote. I did mine myself in an afternoon with vinyl bottoms and the foam was the biggest expense.

well i have new foam, ........from my parents old camper they just sold, ....the buyers didn't want it, so they kept it, ....my dad is a pack rat !!!

so i was thinking about doing it myself but how hard was it?, i have sewn nothing, well i have roughly sewn some badges on my old scout uniform when i was 10, and i have done the odd Halloween costume, again roughly, .........

i don't care if it has piping, so that is not an issue

can you give me a description of how you did it?,

in my mind you would cut all the panels to the size and shape they would be, adding about an inch for sewing arond all the edges, then sew them together adding a zipper, then turn them inside out and put the foam inside????

does that make sense?, am i missing something?, any tips to add?, maybe I will buy fabric for one cushion and giver a go, if it turn out bad i am not out much, if it turn out good then just keep going, i mean i have all winter to get it done, so i am not in a hurry!!!!!
