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 – mmerryuph@gmail.com.  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.
