About us: My great grandmother was an incredibly skilled seamstress. She taught my grandmother, who also learned the art of upholstery. My mom watched and learned woodworking, sewing, and upholstery from her mother and then passed those skills on to me.
My mom and grandmother actually built a sofa from scratch years ago. Together, my mom and I, have created cornice boxes and upholstered headboards. We have sewn to many pillows to count, tons of window coverings, slipcovers, bed skirts, and so much more. Let us show you the tricks of the trade in your very own private lesson!!
