Hi,

I’M JOHN

I started learning custom upholstery in 2008. I was lucky enough to have a great teacher when I first started. I learned a great foundation of upholstery skills from him but that only gets you so far. Over the years I have had to learn so many skills on my own. Most of the time I learned by just figuring things out myself because there is just very little information available about the upholstery trade. It was not an easy path and I’m still learning new skills every day.

A few years ago I made a few “How to” videos and posted them on YouTube and I received great feedback. This was when I realized how much I enjoy sharing and teaching my knowledge of this industry that I love so much. I want to bring new life back to this dying art. I believe in a world of abundance and there is more work out there in the industry than I could ever possibly do. That is why is my intention to create not only an amazing educational resource for people to learn this trade but also an amazing community for the upholstery industry to share their knowledge and experience. So if you’re new or experienced I’m asking for your help to make this happen!
