Where is your shop located?
I am at 110 S. 8th St in Manhattan MT. GPS will bring you to the front door of my home. My shop is a detached building behind my home, with a bay door that opens to the alley between 8th and 7th street.
What are your hours?
I don’t have set hours, but pretty much work from about 9am – 5pm M-F. Since I work about 20 steps from my home, I’m generally pretty available. I’m not always in the shop, so to avoid a wasted trip, I advise to give me a ring before you come over so I can make sure to be there for you.
How can I get a rough estimate for the cost of re-upholstering my project?
The best way to get started is to take a few pictures of your furniture from a few different angles. If there are unusual features, or a broken/problem area, take pictures of that too. Measurements of height, width, and depth are helpful for a fabric yardage estimate. Send this info to me at – firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and phone number.
Where do I get good quality upholstery fabric?
I have sample books from Charlotte Fabrics, United Fabrics/Pacific Hide & Leather, Barrow Industries, Greenhouse Fabrics, and Garrett Leather. I also have accounts with Robert Allen and Duralee. I happily check out books for you to take home. (You may provide your own fabric with a $25 per yard cutting fee)
How do I know if my furniture is worth recovering?
Typically, the older a piece is, the better constructed it is. A good quality piece is made of solid hardwood with glued and doweled joints. If it has springs, either adequately spaced no-sag springs or 8-way tied coil springs are great. You can do a quick check yourself by peeling back a piece of the dust cover and see whats on the inside.
